The Serbian tennis player will be out for at least three weeks, but everything will depend on his body and how he evolves in this stage of rehabilitation, which he will try to shorten to return as soon as possible to the circuit, which will have Wimbledon as the next major tournament, where the Balkan defends last year's final.

Although the chances are very low to reach London (July 1), the current world number three will try to return to his best level in view of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, which will begin on July 27 in the discipline of tennis.

Novak Djokovic had to undergo surgery

24-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic suffered a tear in the medial meniscus of his right knee during his round of 16 match at Roland Garros, an injury for which he underwent surgery last Wednesday in the French capital with the aim of healing as quickly as possible and trying to return to compete at Wimbledon and the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Novak Djokovic is recovering at home, with few chances of competing this year on grass, a surface that could be very demanding to compete again, especially with the Olympic Games so close, an event that will be held on clay.

In a long interview with Fanpage.it, former Italian player Paolo Bertolucci talked about Djokovic: “The signs are not good at all, the level of play is not that of a year, a year and a half ago.

In other words, he is towards the end of his career and can find the set, the points, the game, the moment to phenomenon that he is. But he cannot be the hammer he was years ago.
