Novak Djokovic Will Not Play The Madrid Masters

by Staff | April 21st, 2024, 3:53 pm

Three-time champion Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from the upcoming Madrid Masters.

Djokovic last won the Madrid title in 2019 but has only played the event since, that a semifinal run in 2022. It’s the second straight year he’ll miss the event.

Djokovic remains world No. 1 but is without a title on the season after recent Monte Carlo semifinals and a shock third round exit at Indian Wells. The Australian and United Cup were the only other events he’s played so he’s low on matches with just 15 (11-4 record).

Should new No. 2 Jannik Sinner take the Spanish title, Djokovic could lose No. 1 in Rome or in Paris.

Djokovic will have Rome if he chooses to play ahead of his French Open title defense. The Serb turns 37 in May.

The Madrid men’s event begins on Wednesday. The draw will be released on Monday.

Wog Boy Says:

At the age of almost 37 it is inevitable that someone takes over #1 in the world snd that will be Sinner, quite fitting and deserved. It is actually mind blowing that Nole is still #1 at that age!

Nole is offering #1 spot since USO last year, Alcaraz refused it so Sinner is more pragmatic, he’ll take it and keep it for a while.

422 > 310 > 209
