The September 12 final of the US Open was the last time Novak Djokovic was seen publicly dressed as a tennis player. The tough loss to Daniil Medvedev, which prevented him from the Grand Slam, led him to “winter quarters”.
But, a month later, the rumors began to circulate. The world number one would have in mind to return to the courts before the end of the season.
Everything indicates that his return could have two stops: the Masters 1000 in Paris (which he did not play last year as he closed the world number one in Vienna) and the ATP Finals in Turin.
Victories in France and Italy would secure him number one at the end of the season, and that could be the greatest of motivations for the Serbian, although Representing your nation in the Davis Cup is something that can never be ruled out.
