Despite acknowledging that his leg is not in “perfect shape,” Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic said it is still in decent condition and expressed optimism that it will at least remain so for the remainder of the Australian Open. During his victory over Daniil Medvedev in the Adelaide semifinals 10 days ago, Djokovic, a former world No. 1, tore his hamstring.

Djokovic defeated Roberto Carballes Baena on Tuesday to begin his Australian Open campaign with a 6-3 6-4 6-0 victory. “Although it’s not perfect, the leg is good and improving. It felt better as the game went on, which is a good indication.

To be really honest, I haven’t practiced tennis much lately “According to Djokovic and Sasa Ozmo.

Djokovic won the 2008 Australian Open after defeating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, giving him his first Grand Slam title.

Djokovic‘s family was with him at the time. His family is back with him in Melbourne at this time. “I’m happy my parents are back here. Australia is not exactly close by, hehe. We discussed our recollections of 2008, “added Djokovic.

Djokovic isn’t ruling out the possibility of seeing Ulises Badio again.

Djokovic and Ulises Badio, his longtime physical therapist, parted ways after the 2022 campaign.

Starting in 2017, Djokovic and Badio enjoyed a lot of success together. However, they were unable to come to terms on a new pact, so they made the decision to part ways. Djokovic, though, still has a great deal of respect for Badio and is open to the idea of doing business with him again in the future.

“As a buddy, I adore him; we accomplished a lot together. He’s going to be on the Tour, I’m sure. We were sorry to have to stop, but both parties had made that decision. Who knows, perhaps we’ll collaborate once more “said Djokovic.

Badio was replaced by Claudio Zimaglia by Djokovic.
