Novak Djokovic has found a way to get himself talked about in Paris, in addition to the results he is achieving in these first few days of competitions. To create perplexity among the fans is a kind of Iron Man-style metal magnet that appeared under the shirt of the Serbian champion, also covered by a white patch.
The mysterious object has aroused no small amount of curiosity among tennis fans and enthusiasts, so much so that it immediately became the subject of controversy and discussion on the web. The question also struck journalists, who asked him a specific question at the press conference, after the clear victory in three sets against the Hungarian Marton Fucsovics.
Nole explained: "When I was a child I really liked Iron Man, so I try to impersonate him! You must know that my team gives me incredibly efficient microtechnology to help me perform at my best on the pitch. So this is the biggest secret of my career!" As reported by Eurosport, according to some research on the matter, it is a Tao Patch, and the various companies that produce it promise to treat various inflammatory problems, especially those affecting the skin, bones and joints.
Magnetotherapy is precisely a technique that uses low and high frequency magnetic fields generated by magnets that are applied to the areas to be treated. It is certainly not the first strange episode, which many have tried to investigate to find out more.
Among the most famous ones, when Nole inhaled a substance from a bottle, specially prepared by the staff during a match.
Djokovic returns to the court
The 36-year-old will take to the field again on Friday 2 June to face the third round of the Grand Slam competition.
He will challenge the dangerous Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, an opponent to be reckoned with who defeated him on clay last year in Monte-Carlo. On that occasion it was another Djokovic and perhaps a different version of the Iberian, who so far has eliminated the French Arthur Fils and Luca Van Assche. Now a definitely complicated match against the current number 3 in the world.
