It’s a little bit worrying, isn’t it? Novak Djokovic was knocked out relatively early at Wimbledon, left the Rio Olympics in tears, got blasted off court by Stan Wawrinka in the US Open final…and hasn’t played since. Now he requires further rest and rehabilitation to get his body right for further tennis combat. ‘I’m extremely […]
