Take it for what it’s worth, but Novak Djokovic’s physio, Pavel Kolar, thinks the World No. 2 will be back on court next week at the Rome Masters.
Djokovic withdrew from Madrid this week after his right wrist he injured a month ago was not healthy. Speaking to AFP, Kolar admitted that trying to play Madrid was too early, but added he felt Novak’s “inflamed tendon” would be healthy for Rome and the French Open.
“He should be ready for Rome, that’s the plan. The French Open should follow,” Pavel Kolar told AFP.
“The treatment took place last week but we agreed he would resume training gradually, slowly, to avoid a recurrence.
“Madrid was too early, he would have to start playing on clay which is far more demanding than other surfaces, you play more returns and more spins, straining your wrist, so we decided he would come back in Rome.”
Djokovic is aiming to complete the career Grand Slam in Paris later this month.
