Another Novak Djokovic – Pablo Carreño Busta that left controversy. Unlike the US Open, this time, the Serbian won at Roland Garros, but a particular situation happened again.
It happens that from the beginning the Spanish tennis worked at the same time that the number one in the world showed signs of discomfort in both his neck and his arms.
For this reason, after losing the first set, the only one that yielded in the entire tournament, the Serbian asked for a trainer. From that time on, everything changed and advanced to the semi-finals at Roland Garros for the tenth time.
Of course, already at a press conference, the first question in Spanish had direct reference to these physical problems, and the No. 18 in the world did not hide his anger: “It doesn’t surprise me. It’s a good thing because every time he’s in trouble he usually It means that I have put him in trouble, that he was not comfortable, I have managed to play at a high level and he had doubts. He has been doing this for a long time, every time it gets complicated he asks for medical assistance. I don’t know if he has a problem on the shoulder or is it something mental every time things get complicated. It is not something that has gotten off my mind because I knew what was going to happen at the US Open, what would happen here and what will continue to happen. “
Friday, the world’s No. 1 will play with Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev’s executioner in another quarter-final match at the Paris Grand Slam.
It should be remembered that in the duel in New York, Djokovic was disqualified for the pitch to a judge, which was repeated at Roland Garros. This time it was 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 and 6-4 for the leader of the ladder.
