Nick Kyrgios says he is using Wimbledon as a "vacation" and hopes to get some "strawberries and chill".
Kyrgios has left Australia for the first time since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and has not played competitively since the Australian Open in February.
The 26-year-old has been drawn against Frenchman Ugo Humbert, who he beat in a wild encounter in five sets at the Australian Open, in the first round of the men's singles and will partner Venus Williams in the mixed doubles.

"I'm using this as a vacation," he said.
"I've been in Australia now for a year-and-a-half. I've reached a really nice level of freedom. Nothing fazes me at all any more.
"I didn't feel at all that I had to play. When I was at home I wasn't looking at any results. I was happy without tennis.
"I just feel like I've got a little bit left to give to the game. I feel like a lot of people are wanting me to play.
"I just want to go out there and have some fun. I haven't been on a tennis court for a while. It's Wimbledon, it's the pinnacle of tennis.
I'm going to get myself some strawberries and chill.
