“Well, to be honest, I’ve been having trouble with that for the past seven days. However, hopefully not the primary issue. I’ve been able to practice, compete, and play practice sets thus far. That is encouraging, therefore,” Djokovic stated.

“Obviously, I’m being slightly more cautious. To conserve energy for the following week, I won’t participate fully in the training sessions. “I hope it won’t be a problem for me then,” he added.

It is not secret at all.” The four slams, which have always been our sport’s most important competitions, are listed here.
