Serbia’s legendary tennis star, Novak Djokovic, has revealed that he will decide in the next six days whether he will be able to play in the upcoming Wimbledon 2024. The third Grand Slam of the year will be played from July 01st, where players from all over the world will be participating and showcasing their talent to secure the ultimate prize.
Djokovic is 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 in his illustrious career. The 37-year-old is going through a rather difficult 2024 season, and he has yet to play in the final of any event.
Things have gone from bad to worse for Djokovic, who recently suffered a knee injury. That injury forced him to withdraw from the recently concluded French Open just before the start of the quarterfinal against Norway’s Casper Ruud. After suffering that knee injury, the former world number one had surgery, which cast doubts about his participation in upcoming events such as Wimbledon and the Paris Olympics.
Djokovic was recently quoted in a report about his recovery from the injury. The Belgrade-born star stated that the rehabilitation process is going according to plan and that he will decide about his participation in the next four to six days. Djokovic confirmed that he will only take part if he believes that he can play to his maximum potential.
Novak Djokovic has recently undergone a knee surgery. 
“The rehab has been going in the right direction every single day,” he said. “I’m going to take it day by day and then make a decision based over the next four or five, six days and if I know that I can play close to my maximum or at maximum, then I’ll play if not, then give somebody else a chance to play.”
Djokovic has a fabulous record while playing at Wimbledon. He has lifted the title seven times, second-most in the competition. He is only behind former world number one Switzerland’s Roger Federer, who is the most successful player in the competition’s history, having lifted the title eight times.
