When other athletes claim to be injured, the media never questions their veracity, according to Novak Djokovic, who finds it curious that some of them do. In Adelaide, Djokovic, 35, sustained a hamstring injury.

Djokovic managed to win Adelaide, however, and advance to the Australian Open quarterfinals. Djokovic‘s left leg has been severely braced ever since he tore his hamstring in the semifinals of Adelaide. Some people are even speculating that Djokovic is fabricating an ailment, though.

Djokovic: Only my inquiries are being contested.

“Let them doubt; I’ll leave the doubting to them. The only thing in doubt is my injuries. When other players are hurt, they are the victims; but, when it’s me, I’m just acting.

It’s quite fascinating. I don’t think I have anything to prove to anyone. I have copies of both the MRI and ultrasound from two years ago as well as the current ones. Depending on how I feel, I may post that in my documentary or on social media.

I might do it, or I might not. I’m not really interested in what people are saying or thinking right now. It’s entertaining and intriguing to observe how the story that surrounds me develops; this story differs from that of other gamers who have gone through comparable circumstances.

However, I am accustomed to it, and I am made stronger and more motivated by it. Djokovic said, “So I thank them for it,” reported to Serbian journalist Sasa Ozmo of Tennis Majors. Djokovic, meanwhile, defeated Alex de Minaur at the Australian Open with just five games dropped to go to the quarterfinals.

Djokovic claimed that his victory over de Minaur was the first time he had played without any pain. Djokovic added that just because he didn’t have any pain against de Minaur doesn’t mean he won’t in the remaining matches of the competition. Next, Djokovic takes on Andrey Rublev.
