Fans reacted after Novak Djokovic accepted a wild card for the ATP 250 Geneva Open a week before the French Open. The Serbian was surprisingly eliminated in the third round of the Rome Open by Alejandro Tabilo with a convincing score of 6-2, 6-3.
The 24-time Grand Slam champion was struck by a bottle to the head two days earlier as he exited the stadium after defeating Corentin Moutet in his debut match. Djokovic acknowledged after his loss to Tabilo that it might have affected him against the Chilean.
Nole's early exit from the tournament, coupled with his absence from the Madrid Open, may have led him to decide to participate in one more tournament before the French Open.
The Serbian will compete in the Geneva Open, where he will be the top seed in a main draw featuring six players from the top 30, including Casper Ruud, Taylor Fritz, and Ben Shelton.
“Bro doesnt want Sinner to be world number 1,” a fan wrote on X with crying faces.
“Why is this man doing this. These lower ranked tennis players just tryna get some points in man”

Why is this man doing this. These lower ranked tennis players just tryna get some points in man😭😭😭

BREAKING: Novak Djokovic accepted a wild card for the Geneva ATP 250 next week. Very rare to see Djokovic play in the week before a Slam, but it really looks like he needs some matches and confidence this time.

He's finally found his level. I'm happy for Novak that he can enjoy tennis again playing 250's
He needs to find his rhythm and secure some victories. I think he will retire from the tournament during the semifinals

The guy is genuinely blessed at Roland Garros this year - bizarrely despite this horrendous form, without Sinner, without a fully fit Alcaraz, without the Nadal of old - you'd still somehow make him favourite... Amazing.”
