Serbia’s legendary tennis star, Novak Djokovic, has returned to training ahead of the third Grand Slam of the year. Wimbledon 2024 will begin from the first of July where players from all over the world will showcase their talent and fight to secure the ultimate prize.
Djokovic, who is often regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of men’s tennis in the Open era, having won as many as 24 Grand Slam titles, is going through a difficult campaign. The 37-year-old is yet to play in the final of any event. That streak continued in his most recent appearance, which was at the Roland Garros, where his journey came to an end just before the start of the quarterfinal against Norway’s Casper Ruud.
The Serbian legendary tennis star suffered a knee injury during his round-of-16 win over Francisco Cerundolo of Argentina, in which he came out on top with a score of 6-1, 5-7, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3. That withdrawal from the mega-event also cost the Belgrade-born star his top spot in the ATP rankings. After the announcement that he will not further take part in the competition, Djokovic underwent surgery on his knee, which raised doubts about his participation in the upcoming Wimbledon 2024.
However, according to French publication L’Equipe, Djokovic has returned to training just a week before the start of the mega-event. This news will be great for the former world number one's fans, who will hope to see him in action sooner rather than later.
Novak Djokovic was forced to retire from the French Open after suffering a knee injury.
Djokovic has a fabulous record while playing at Wimbledon. He has lifted the title seven times, which is the joint second-most in the competition’s history, only behind Switzerland’s legendary tennis star Roger Federer. Last year, Djokovic suffered a heartbreaking defeat in the final of Wimbledon to Spain’s young tennis sensation Carlos Alcaraz in a five-set thrilling contest with a score of 1–6, 7–6(8–6), 6–1, 3–6, 6–4.
