Novak Djokovic makes round at Australian Open but injury persists: ‘My situation is not ideal’

Novak Djokovic defeated France’s Enzo Cuco on Thursday 6-1, 6-7, 6-2 and 6-0. Despite winning in four setsThe Serbian was suffering from problems with his left foot and stated that his situation was not ideal during the tournament.

“My situation is not ideal, but I don’t want to go any further. I would like to feel different, but I have to go day by day. It’s good that there is a rest day between games and it’s time to try to recover. I have to be out of training on rest days,” Djokovic said.

The Serbian will face Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov in the next round and will not train due to pain in his leg, waiting to recover to be in optimal shape.

“I’m worried, I can’t say no because I have my reasons. I have to accept the circumstances. I’m going to go ahead and try to compete with Dimitrov. Now every passing day will be more difficult. Two years ago there were similar circumstances and I ended up winning the game,” he commented on his 2021 crown.

Djokovic spoke about what happened to a fan who began to insult him in the last game and was expelled from the stands after he complained to the referee and asked to be removed from the field.

“I have a problem when someone crosses the line. There were several times, there was a group clearly intoxicated, but that was precisely what offended and annoyed me. I endured it for almost two hours,” he reasoned about his demands for the linesman to expel this person.

The Serb also clarified that the next games will be physical due to the weather and the night games are longer due to cold temperatures, so he hopes to be at his best despite the injury.

“I don’t know how we can change that. The calendar in recent days has been affected by the weather with extreme heat and rain, and games continued until late at night. The weather is colder so the game is slower and we will see more physical battles,” he commented.
