"I'm also not surprised if he loses early": Sam Querrey casts doubt about Novak Djokovic's chances at Roland Garros

Former world number 10 Sam Querrey believes that Serbia’s Novak Djokovic will enter the upcoming French Open in unchartered territory. The 36-year-old is often regarded as the greatest player in the history of men’s tennis in the Open era, having won as many as 24 Grand Slam titles.
Djokovic is going through a difficult campaign where he is yet to play in the final of any event. He recently participated in the Rome Open where he lost to Chile’s Alejandro Tabilo with a score of 6-2, 6-3. Querrey was recently quoted in a report where he stated that he has never seen the current world number one playing like the way he has in the recent past and therefore, he won’t be surprised if the Serb legendary tennis star suffers an early exit from the Roland Garros.
"I don't know [what's going on with Djokovic],” he said. “I watched his match against Tabilo (at the Italian Open). It looked like he didn't try. He lost 6-2, 6-3. He wasn't in the match mentally from the third, fourth game. At this point he's only concerned about the Grand Slams so I trust him to get it together mentally and be engaged and ready to go at the French Open. He's never come into the French Open in the last 15, 16 years having such terrible results. So, I'm also not surprised if he loses early to, you know, a player like Tabilo.”
