17-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic reveals he practiced every day during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown but he didn't want to post it on the social media and potentially stir the rage from the other players.
After the cancellation of the Masters events in Indian Wells and Miami, Djokovic flew to Marbella, where he quarantined with his family for two months before returning to Serbia last week. Upon returning to Serbia, Djokovic announced his plan to host the Adria Tour across four Balkan countries from June 13 - July 5.
The Tour has been suspended since March 12 due to the coronavirus outbreak and there won't be any ATP events taking place until at least early-August. Thanks to Djokovic, tennis fans will be able to see of the biggest stars in the game next month as world No.
3 Dominic Thiem, 2018 Nitto ATP Finals champion Alexander Zverev and former world No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov have signed up to play the Adria Tour. "I was able to train every day because we had a tennis court in our backyard.
I didn't post it on the social media because I didn't want to stir the rage from the other players. I was practicing on the hard court, lately on the clay court as well. I feel good. I have been working out a lot. It's uncertain when we will again play but I'm taking this Tour seriously. World stars are coming and I want them to have a positive experience. I care a lot," Djokovic said, per Sport Klub.
