The victory of Novak Djokovic vs. Taylor Fritz for the third round of the Australian Open left some noise in the tennis environment. The Serbian had some questions about the injury he suffered in the match, from which he miraculously recovered in the fifth set. After the game, the American doubted that Nole really suffered serious inconvenience.
“If he had been really injured he would not have continued playing. I knew I would come back strong in the fifth set, “said the No. 31 in the world in a press conference, after a long 7-6 (1), 6-4, 3-6, 4-6 and 6-2.
One more time, Djokovic is involved in a controversy with another tennis player on the circuit. This time it was not for comments off the court, but it was something purely tennis.
In turn, Fritz did not agree with the final celebration of No. 1: “During the third and fourth sets I did not celebrate any points out of respect for Djokovic. I thought i was injured and it did not seem appropriate to celebrate them. But I know this victory meant a lot to him, so I’m happy for him. “
The evolution of the Serbian is a mystery and if he arrives in optimal conditions at his next match, which will be against Milos Raonic for the fourth round of the Australian Open.
