This is just what djoko needs. Still think it’s to tough a task but a straight sets win will give him the best chance to try recover and rest the hamstring further.

Some Fedal fans gonna hate , but one thing even those haters can totally understand even if the won't speak up openly , and that is-

Djokovic got to play only 2 slams in 2020 ( Wimbledon Cancelled and USO Defaulted ) .

He got to play at only two Slams in 2022 ( banned at Australian Open and USO )

4 Slams gone where Novak was almost Favourite . He would have won 2 slams at his worst out of these 4 .

Now Back to 2023 , Novak might be banned again at US Open .And if he retires at Australian Open bcoz of Injury then , he again gets to be competitive only at 2 slams this year.

This is why Novak will try his best to compete at Australian Open and won't retire till he is defeated or he can't move anymore .

Ofcourse , his presence in Slams will make your life hell on TTW. Cope . :happydevil:
This is some serious rewriting of what happened. He could have played all slams last year, he chose not to. Medvedev got banned, Djoko didn't. And he only has himself to blame for the US default

(coming from someone who hopes Djoko wins the slam race)

I think the one thing we can all agree is that predicting the progression of Djokovic’s level is basically impossible. One minute he’ll be great, then he’ll barely be walking, then like now he’s skating around like a 20 year old. So people with their “he’s done” or “he’s fine” takes are basically always premature

this is not really how a hamstring injury works though

Diego Costa the main striker of our club had hamstring since weeks and club took the risk of playing him in UCL final ( biggest match of 21st century in our club's history) but he couldn't continue for more than few minutes and was taken off but here's a guy with hamstring playing matches on the trotts without having even a week of rest and running like a rabbit. Yeah, okay!

He looks done when it's an unimportant point, and skates around like a 20 year old when he actually needs to win the point. I'm not even watching and I know that's what he's doing because I've seen that act from him a million times before.

Actually he had a valid exemption and he was cheated by Morrison. But yeah, the US open is just policy, there was no workaround for it.
