In the middle of uncertainties, World No.1 Novak Djokovic resumed his action at the ongoing Monte-Carlo Masters 2022. Nevertheless, the 34-year-old from Belgrade, unfortunately, lost to World No.46 Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the opening encounter. 

In a recent interview with UBI Tennis, Goran Ivanisevic, the coach of Novak Djokovic, revealed the reasons behind his pupil’s early exit from the Monaco ATP1000 tourney.

“He wasn’t feeling well before he came here. He was sick. Let’s say he’s not fit one hundred percent to compete”, the Croatian Ivanisevic explained.

The former Wimbledon champion also added, “First of all in this situation. Three weeks ago he was not allowed to play here because of the Covid decision. Then France opened and he was allowed. And it’s difficult mentally.” 

“You can play in the semifinals. But you can’t prepare the way you would need to. And then he got sick. And, to be honest, I didn’t expect something spectacular from this tournament.” 

“But he’ll be going to the French Open in five or six weeks, he’s got a couple more tournaments and he will be ready.”

Last but not least, the French Open 2022 will take place from 22nd May to 5th June in Paris, France.
