Novak Djokovic, who is trying to win the men’s singles title at the Australian Open tennis tournament for the 10th time, said, “There is no reason to prove that the injury is real” in the controversy over the ‘fake injury’.
American sports media ESPN reported Djokovic’s words on the 25th. Djokovic, who reached the quarterfinals at the Australian Open, the first major tournament of the season in Melbourne, Australia, is playing with a hamstring injury.
Djokovic, who is playing with a bandage on his upper left leg, seems to struggle after making long rallies or performing somewhat unreasonable movements during the game. Nevertheless, when he continued his 25-game winning streak from 2019, especially at the Australian Open, controversy arose over a ‘fake injury’. 헤라카지노도메인
Djokovic’s false injury controversy is not only this year. At the 2021 Australian Open, he said he had an abdominal muscle injury, but in the third round he won 3-2 against Taylor Fritz (USA), and in the final match with Andy Murray (UK) in 2015, it was similar.
In the match against Fritz, Djokovic won the first and second sets first, then gave up the third and fourth sets complaining of abdominal pain, but suddenly showed normal performance in the fifth set and won 6-2 and eventually won the championship. Some argue that Djokovic distracts the opponent’s concentration by citing injuries.
Djokovic, who defeated Alex Diminore (Australia) 3-0 in the round of 16 two days ago, said, “I have nothing to prove to those who doubt it. It’s interesting,” dismissing the ‘fake injury’ controversy. He said, “I also received MRI test results. Just like two years ago, there are many words this time, but I will use these as an opportunity to motivate myself.”
