Novak Djokovic is still battling an elbow issue as he prepares for the French Open following his early exit at the Monte Carlo Masters last week. The world No. 1 suffered a third-round defeat to Lorenzo Musetti, where the Italian broke him eight times.
Despite the setback, Djokovic is set to return to action at the Srpska Open in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Wednesday, where he will meet 18-year-old Frenchman Luca Van Assche. The 35-year-old admitted that his elbow is not in ideal shape but good enough to be ready for the first match.
Djokovic has won the French Open twice, in 2016 and 2021, and is looking to prepare himself for this year’s event.
He is well aware of the challenges that lie ahead of him, with his elbow issue being a significant concern. Despite this, he is determined to take every opportunity to prove his worth and take a step forward. He is optimistic about his chances at the Srpska Open and is looking forward to playing against Van Assche.
Djokovic has turned over a new leaf and is keen to get his preparations back on track for the French Open, which is set to take place from May 28 to June 11.
