Wimbledon final opponents Novak Djokovic and Kevin Anderson will team up in a star-studded doubles draw at the Rogers Cup.

Djokovic defeated Anderson in straight sets at Wimbledon last month to claim his 13th grand slam title, but they will be partners in Toronto.

The two stars have been drawn against highly rated teenage home hopefuls Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime in the first-round match.

There is another hugely exciting doubles clash, though, as four of the ATP's top 12 singles players face off.

Sixth-ranked Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffin (11) will take on world number eight Dominic Thiem and Diego Schwartzman (12).
