After a quick win and dance last night at the Rogers Cup Montreal, 2-time defending champion Novak Djokovic weighed in on the Viktor Troicki doping case, giving full support for his friend on countryman.
“We’re not sure what’s going to happen with Viktor,” Djokovic told Reuters.
“We all give him big support because he’s definitely innocent,” he said. “Hopefully he is going to be able to be on the court very soon.”
Under the ITF ruling, Troicki has been banned 18 months for refusing to submit to a blood test earlier this year in Monte Carlo. He is currently appealing to CAS.
