Djokovic will travel to Wimbledon but unsure on playing

Novak Djokovic has made plans to travel to Wimbledon and is expected to arrive on Monday, but the seven-time champion remains uncertain about his participation following recent knee surgery. The Serbian player withdrew from the French Open after the fourth round due to a torn medial meniscus in his right knee, prompting surgery in Paris only 17 days ago. Despite the initial uncertainty, Djokovic aims to maximize his chances of competing by practicing at the All England Club.

The Wimbledon tournament commences on 1 July, initially seeming unlikely for Djokovic, whose prospects of participating in the Olympics in Paris also appeared doubtful. However, Djokovic has shared positive updates on Instagram, including videos of him using an exercise bike and performing exercises in the gym, followed by footage of running, lunging, and hitting serves tentatively.

In a message to his followers, Djokovic expressed a gradual progress in his recovery. Having reached the Wimbledon final for the past five years and finishing as the runner-up last year, Djokovic expressed his commitment to returning to competition at the highest level. Reflecting on his love for the sport and determination to recover swiftly, Djokovic remains optimistic about his return to competitive tennis.

Drawing inspiration from Taylor Fritz’s recovery after a similar knee operation during the French Open, Djokovic remains hopeful, having observed Fritz’s return to form at Wimbledon shortly after his surgery. Despite the physical challenges and the demanding schedule of Wimbledon followed closely by the Paris Olympics, Djokovic’s rapid recovery aims to assess his readiness for a potential 19th appearance at Wimbledon.
