Will Novak Djokovic be able to recover his best condition from his right knee to be at the start of Wimbledon? This is the question that all fans of the Serbian champion, who has already arrived in London to carry out various training sessions and test his body after surgery to overcome the meniscus injury, are asking themselves in recent days.

The 37-year-old intervened from London and explained that he will make a final decision before the main draw. There are widely differing opinions among insiders and former tennis players on the final choice of the 24-time Slam winner.

Novak Djokovic’s presence is uncertain

Former ATP ace Greg Rusedski is unlikely to have him on the grass courts of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club: "I would be very surprised if Novak Djokovic played at Wimbledon. It’s nice to see him on the field training, but I feel it’s more a way of seeing where he is and making a good preparation until he’s 100%" is the comment of the 50-year-old from Montreal, who reached the quarter-finals in London in 1997.

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic has already played two friendly sets against the Argentine Federico Coria and the American Frances Tiafoe.

In both comparisons, the Serbian managed to win the tie-break 7-5. The seven-time winner of Wimbledon will continue training these days, then communicate the decision to the media and fans.

One of the key points is the reaffirmation of the Serbian about his retirement from the professional circuit, much was said after the injury in Roland Garros and a season in which he has not been able to conquer titles, but the champion of 98 professional titles threw away all possibility and assured that this will not be his last tournament in the Cathedral of tennis.

"I want to continue, only this year has been different because of the injury I had in Paris. It was unfortunate, but so is the sport. It is the first time in my career that I suffer a major knee injury, I carry it day by day, managing it as best I can with my team.”
