Former French Open champion Marion Bartoli has revealed that Serbia’s legendary tennis star Novak Djokovic is more than likely to participate in Wimbledon 2024.
The third Grand Slam of the year will begin on July 1st, and players from all over the world will participate to showcase their talent and battle to secure the ultimate prize.
Djokovic is 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 in his illustrious career. However, according to his high standards, he is having a difficult season.
The former world number one has yet to play in a final of any event this season. That streak continued during the French Open when Djokovic was forced to retire just before the start of the quarterfinal against Norway’s Casper Ruud because of a knee injury.
After withdrawing, the Belgrade-born star underwent surgery, which raised doubts about his participation in the upcoming Wimbledon 2024.
Bartoli, who won the French Open in 2023 after beating Germany’s Sabine Lisicki in the final in straight sets with a score of 6-1, 6-4, was recently quoted in a report where she revealed that as per her information, Djokovic is more likely to play in the third Grand Slam of the year.
Novak Djokovic suffered a knee injury during the French Open.
“You know, I know the physiotherapist who takes care of Novak’s rehabilitation well, he worked at Olympique de Marseille,” she said. “And what I can tell you is that, internally, what is said is that there is a greater chance that Djokovic will play Wimbledon than the other way around. So we have to stop thinking that he won’t play at Wimbledon. And if he finally plays, of course, he will be one of the two favourites.”
Djokovic has a fabulous record while playing at Wimbledon. He has lifted the title seven times, joint second-most in the competition, only behind Switzerland’s Roger Federer, who has lifted the title eight times.
