PARIS- Novak Djokovic after his defeat by world number 71 Marco Cecchinato, Djokovic said he is unsure if he will be playing in Wimbledon.
Djokovic lost 6-3, 7-6(4), 1-6, 7-6(11) and at his press conference the star tennis player was still visibly wounded over his defeat, he answered several questions with one worded answers.
Djokovic, who won the last of his 12 Grand Slam titles in Paris two years ago, told reporters who were crowded into a small interview room after he declined the opportunity to use a much larger one, “I don’t know if I’m going to play on grass,”
When pressed on whether he would be able to play at Wimbledon, the 31-year-old Serb was non-committal.
“I don’t know. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I just came from the court. Sorry, guys, I can’t give you that answer.
“I cannot give you any answer.”
He did however refuse to blame any physical problems for his defeat.
“He played amazing and credit to him. Congrats for a great performance. He came out very well,” he said.
“I struggled from the beginning. Unfortunately, it took me time to get well, and struggled with a little injury, as well, at the beginning. And after, when I warmed up, it was better.
“Just a pity that I couldn’t capitalise on the chances in the 4-1 in the fourth set and some break points. I thought I had him there, but he came back and credit to him.”
