The recovery of Novak Djokovic is well underway after the operation on the medial meniscus of the right knee to which he was subjected in Paris just over two weeks after his retirement in the quarterfinals of Roland Garros.

24-time Grand Slam champion shared a video on his social networks, images in which he already trains with greater intensity, performing physical work normally and ending with racket in hand on court, surprising by the speed of its recovery after arthroscopy in the aforementioned joint.

Novak Djokovic showed the first progress made after the right knee surgery by posting a video of his rehabilitation path on Instagram. Video in which she tries to strengthen the affected area by already performing specific exercises and works with smile.

Novak Djokovic tries to recover in record time to return as soon as possible to the circuit of the ATP, which will have as next great round Wimbledon (July 1), where the Serbian defends the points of the final that played last year against Carlos Alcaraz.

The Serbian was included in his country’s list for the 2024 Olympic Games, which will have action in tennis since July 27, one of the few titles missing in the showcase of the current number three in the world.

On his official X account, Paul McNamee commented on Nole’s injury. “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.

On the other hand, doubts remain about the participation of the 24 times Slam champion in the next edition of Wimbledon. The 37-year-old Belgrade has never hidden his desire to arrive in the best possible conditions at the Olympic Games in Paris 2024 and to offer himself the opportunity to win the gold medal he has always dreamed of winning for his country.
