“I know everything, but I can’t tell you anything, sorry. I decided to have a press conference. I will answer all questions there. I have already arranged with my PR team, the invitation will arrive in a few days,” Djokovic told Jelena Medic of Sportal.
“These two weeks I was thinking whether I should publish anything about the injury, and I told myself that I will, I want to. I will go into more details and publish some photos on social media about everything we went through,” he added.
In the Australian Open 2023 final, Djokovic defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5), and won the title. But he disclosed how the rumors affected him and that he would soon clear things out.
