The first racket of the world, Novak Djokovic, refused to play at the last Masters series tournament in Paris.

“At the end of this season, I will take part in two tournaments: in Vienna and London. I have not been to Vienna for almost 15 years. The country was not on my original schedule, but I wanted to perform there”

“It was a strange season, but I hope to finish it in the first place. Over the past two months, I have played several matches; I could not go anywhere first because of restrictions, then because of the quarantine rules at tournaments. It drained me mentally”
