Some days ago, Novak caused all sorts of drama after he began struggling with his oblique against fritz. Later, Novak revealed that Zverev told him he has the same injury, opposite side.

Earlier today, Casper Ruud pulled put against Rublev after two sets. Reason? Pulled oblique.

In the evening session, Berrettini gave a walkover against Tsitsipas. Why, you ask? Pain under his ribcage -- in his oblique.

What is going on? What tomfoolery and bamboozlement have these fellas been up to? Who will next fall prey to this most oblique of plagues?

McEnroe was saying last night it’s probably because of lack of match practice beforehand. With them only getting three hours of match practice a day most likely didn’t have much time to practice their serves. Oblique muscles can easily be strained by the service motion.

No-one seems to realise that Djokovic's oblique injury is but a commentary of the politics of the ATP Tour. This is why despite being injured he's getting better and better with each round.

The powers that be were very oblique about their processes and as a result Djokovic and some other pros stepped away to form a more transparent union of their own.
