A decisive week for Novak Djokovic on the green lawn of the Wimbledon Championships, a player who continues to add after each training to decide if he will finally compete in Wimbledon next week.

The current number two of the world already practiced with Federico Coria, who defeated in one of the two tiebreaks that disputed at the beginning of the week, He is not yet working to the maximum of his ability to take care of his physique after the operation he underwent 19 days ago to repair the injury he suffered in the medial meniscus of the right knee in the round of 16 of Roland Garros.

The world’s current number two proves his physique on the London lawn.

Djokovic, seven-time Wimbledon champion, worked this time with American Frances Tiafoe to continue testing himself in the most demanding event he has had so far in London, where he must decide before Friday morning if he will be in the draw of the main draw.

The session lasted an hour, according to ESPN, and the set was played by the Serbian 7-6.

Medjedovic believes Novak Djokovic is fit to play at Wimbledon 

During a long interview with Clay, young ATP star Hamad Medjedovic praised Novak Djokovic: “I was checking on him. He wants to play. Most likely he’s fit since he came here. I really wish him to be healthy and fit. I hope that we get to see him play this year at Wimbledon.

This (Djokovic’s ability to recover) is out of this world. I think Novak is just something else. The way his body heals is insane. He had a surgery two or three weeks ago. Now he’s here practising. He’s from another planet.

If he’s fit and healthy, which I believe he is, because he came here, he is, in my opinion, the biggest favourite to be the champion.”
