Djokovic’s With Wrist Problem Continues

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Novak Djokovic said he was bothered by a wrist problem during the Laver Cup. The tournament was Djokovic’s first event since he won his 21st Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon in early July.

The 35-year-old produced a top performance on his return to the Tour, winning his singles and doubles matches but lost to Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime on the final day of competition on Sunday.

“I have been struggling with my right wrist for the last four, five days, to be honest. I have been keeping it under control. The two matches yesterday probably had an effect. Today was not easy. I couldn’t serve as fast or as accurately as I would like to. That has affected the whole game”, he told the media.

However, Djokovic said qualifying for November’s ATP Finals in Turin remained his goal and that he will play a tournament in Tel Aviv this week followed by an event in Kazakhstan next week and then the Paris Masters at the end of October.
