“Elbow again”… Djokovic’s 23rd major championship challenge ‘braking’

Novak Djokovic (Serbia), world number 1 in men’s tennis, has put a brake on his challenge to win the singles title in his 23rd major tournament. The elbow problem that plagued him several times recurred.

According to the British BBC on the 19th, Djokovic, who is about to participate in the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Tour Spruce Open in Bosnia and Herzegovina, met with local reporters and said, “My right elbow is not in an ideal condition.”

Previously, Djokovic was knocked out in the round of 16 after suffering a shock loss to Lorenzo Musetti (Italy) at the Monte Carlo Masters, which was his first appearance of the clay court season this season. At the time, Djokovic competed with a compression band on his right elbow.

Djokovic has suffered several times with his right elbow. After taking a break for six months from mid-2017 due to pain in the affected area, he returned at the Australian Open in 2018, but the pain recurred and he was eliminated in the round of 16. At that time, the player who defeated Djokovic was Jung Hyeon. In the end, Djokovic, who underwent right elbow surgery right after the Australian Open, added 10 singles wins in major tournaments until this year’s Australian Open. 토토사이트

Djokovic shares the record for the most singles wins in a major tournament with his rival Rafael Nadal (Spain), with 22. The next stage to challenge the record is the French Open, a clay court event that opens on the 28th of next month. Attention is focusing on how much Djokovic, who has rarely won a tour victory since the Australian Open, can improve his performance until the French Open, which is about a month away.
