Uncertainty remains around Novak Djokovic’s state of health. Qualified for the round of 16 of the Australian Open, where he must meet Milos Raonic this Sunday, the world number 1 did not train this Saturday.
Djokovic took exams
Novak Djokovic complained on Friday of abdominal pain during his third round match against American Taylor Fritz, 31st in the world. Backed up to two sets everywhere, the world number 1 finally got away with it in the last round after almost 3h30 of play. “It’s one of the most special victories of my life. To come out like this, I think that I will remember it all my life “, even indicated the Serb, visibly much reduced by his abdominal pain.
According to ESPN, Novak Djokovic just went to Melbourne Park on Saturday to receive treatment and take exams, namely a scan of the obliques. Very relieved at the time of his victory against a rather dubious Fritz, Novak Djokovic nevertheless felt that he had a “weak” chance to be on the court this Sunday.
The package of Novak Djokovic, eight-time winner of the event and title holder, would necessarily open up prospects while the Serbian still appears as one of the big favorites to succeed one another. “If he can play as he did in the 5th set, I don’t see why he could not play, estimated Friday Taylor Fritz, inevitably disappointed. At this level, he will beat almost everyone. . “
