This Friday Jannik Sinner and Novak Djokovic will meet again to share training, a luxury day with the world’s number one and two, who will have his great and demanding test to meditate if he says present in the draw of the main draw to be held this Friday at All England Club, an information shared by the Italian medium "La Gazzetta dello Sport".

Djokovic comes from a shocking recovery after the surgery he underwent 20 days ago to repair the damage to the right knee.

In a recent interview with ‘Rumbo a Paris’, Pablo Carreno Busta recalled his win over Djokovic at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021: "I was very focused from the beginning, knowing what I had to do and knowing that maybe he would be more hurt than me by the defeat in semis because his goal was to win the gold. He was going to the Olympics to win the gold, which was the only thing he had left to do. I knew that mentally for him it was going to be hard and it’s true that he started the game as wanting to go very fast, as meaning: 'Well, I’m the best, I’m going to win and that’s it, I take this fast'".
