Australian tennis player John Millman reacted to the social media accusations that Novak Djokovic's team may be preparing illegal drinks in the stands. Instead, Millman says they hide because they want to protect the ingredient formula.
"Too much attention on a team member mixing sports drinks.. a proper ridiculous notion that something is up, stadium full, cameras everywhere, drinks mixed in players box.. I mean use a little logic here, maybe just maybe they don’t want to give the edge to anyone," Millman wrote on Twitter.
"To add to that, inside a locker room you see a player's team always making drinks, in unmarked bottles and put in the fridge. Training programs, supplement intake etc is trade secret," the Australian added.

Video of Djokovic's team hiding drink prep ritual
On Twitter, a video showed Novak Djokovic's team hiding the preparation procedure of a drink that was later sent to Djokovic surfaced.
The opinions were divided, but most viewers questioned why the team would want to hide anything from the cameras. "Can anyone who knows tennis explain what is going on here, and why it’s being done this way? It looks amazingly dodgy," journalist Damian Reilly captioned the video with the peculiar behavior of Nole's team.

In August, John Millman, who had to leave the Los Cabos tournament due to the positivity found to Covid, stood up for Djokovic: "I'm out with Covid, just arrived in the United States.
It doesn't seem that people have followed any recommendations or guidelines, which is fine, and consequently I don't understand why Djokovic can't come and play. To be clear. If the whole country follows the same rules, then I am totally in favor of enforcing certain entry vaccination requirements.
However, from what I have seen, practically no one does, the tournament admits unvaccinated citizens and only 30% have the booster dose."
