Novak Djokovic is again embroiled in controversy regarding a water bottle with a note being sent to the World No.1 by means of the bottle.
Djokovic raised eyebrows for again having his 'magic potion' delivered to him on court. But it seems he is using a new rule to his advantage.
The 2023 Grand Slam rulebook states: “In 2023 an Off-court coaching trial will be conducted at all Grand Slam tournaments." and just three games into his tie with Andrey Rublev, he was passed over a water bottle with a note on it.
"What message are they getting across?" Commentator Chris Bradnam said on Eurosport. "The liquids. If that's going to help Novak Djokovic and he bottles it for sale, he'd make a fortune."
