After the hard news with his retirement from Roland Garros, injury and operation of the medial meniscus of the right knee, things are changing little by little for Novak Djokovic, who begins to receive good news from Cara on his return to the competition, a return that could happen directly at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, although there are possibilities to see it compete at Wimbledon from July 1.

In social networks the champion of 24 Grand Slam shared a video in which he is observed working his physique with greater intensity, without bandages or protections in the area operated and training with racket in hand, celebrating that he had returned to playing tennis that he had missed so much these last two weeks, in which he began his recovery in the gym. On his X account, Paul McNamee reflected on Novak Djokovic’s current status.

Paul McNamee is a big fan of Novak Djokovic. “Novak Djokovic, if he plays, will now be seeded 2 at Wimbledon. The chat is that the Olympics is his priority, which given his patriotic fervour, is admirable. However, the reality is if reasonably in shape he would have a better chance at Wimbledon than the Olympics…just saying,” the two-time Wimbledon doubles champion wrote on X.

After Roland Garros, where he could not defend the title, Nole descended to the third position of the gentlemen’s classification with the triumph of Carlos Alcaraz for the first time in the French capital.

But the Serbian tennis player will return next Monday to the second square of the ATP ranking after the defeat in the round of 16 of the young Spaniard of 21 years, who could not defend his title and the 500 points in the tournament of Queen’s this week.

Alcaraz fell in the round of 16 against local idol Jack Draper, who won in two sets to add one of the most important victories of his career and confirm his great moment after the tournament he won in Stuttgart last week.
