"Novak Djokovic is ill"

Novak Djokovic He left the Monte Carlo ATP Masters 1000 tournament worried. “I ran out of gas, and it’s something I’ll have to talk about with my team,” he said after melting physically in the third set that led to the defeat against the Spaniard. Alexander Davidovich 6-3, 67 (5) and 6-1 in three hours of the second round match.

This is the return of world number one in the competition after just playing this course Dubai ATPwhere he lost in the quarterfinals against the Czech Jiri Vesely.

Restrictions due to the pandemic led to his deportation from Australia and on the impossibility of competing Indian Wells and Miami by not wanting to be vaccinated against covid. Limits are being removed, or lowered, on European territory, paving the way for him on the clay court tour, which will continue next week with his tournament, the Belgrade ATP 250.

According to his coach, the Croatian Goran Ivanisevicleft alone after a recent departure from Slovakian Marian Vajda of the ‘Nole’ group, there are incidents that explain the sinking of his student. “He wasn’t feeling well before coming here. He’s sick. Let’s say he’s not one hundred percent fit to compete,” he explained in an interview with ubitennis. Although he didn’t downplay Davidovich, he recalled that “starting on the ground, after only playing three games this year, was complicated”

In the physical recession, where he does not provide details, the uncertainty of how the pandemic will progress will be added. “Three weeks ago he wasn’t allowed to play Monte Carlo. France opened up the option and allowed him to play. And it’s hard to imagine “, acknowledged the coach, former champion of Wimbledon.

“You can’t prepare the way you want after he gets sick. But he’ll be fine with Roland Garroshe needs to play some tournaments and he’ll be ready, ”he said.

Remember, as Djokovic, 34, said, it’s always hard for him to start with clay. That he already has some hesitation starting in 2021 but he corrected it by reaching the final of Rome and succeeded in Roland Garros for the second time.

In the decision not to get vaccinated, Ivanisevic told Ubitennis that “this is his life, his decision. I respect his decision, his family. He said he would really risk his career. I love him even more for that because he stands firm in what he says. He is the only person in the world who speaks his mind. Hopefully this pandemic will stop. Hopefully the United States opens up and I can play in the US Open in September. “
