Djokovic played in Australia with a three centimeter tear in his hamstring

As the hours go by, we learn more details about the success achieved by Novak Djokovic with his victory at the Australian Open. A tournament in which the Serbian tennis player had to face criticism that accused him of faking his injuries, something that Djokovic himself stated that he would deny with evidence in the coming days.

However, in the last few hours, Djokovic has been beaten by the director of the Australian Open, Craig Tiley, who in statements to the Australian radio program SEN Sportsday, revealed the injury with which Djokovic competed during the tournament. “A lot of Djokovic’s challenges are because he has a bad reputation. But in the end I don’t think anyone questions his sporting performance. Look what this guy did, he had a 3cm tear in the hamstring in his left leg. I’ve seen the scans and the doctors will tell you the truth. There was a lot of speculation as to whether or not it was true. It’s hard to believe he’s done this with these types of injuries. It’s unbelievable the way he has dealt with it.”

Tiley also surrendered to the figure of the Serbian and his concentration to prepare for a tournament that is already part of history. “Djokovic is focused on everything he does every minute of the day. He controls what he eats, what he drinks, what he does and how he does it. There is no mental breakdown in anything he does. He has gone through a lot to win 10 Australian Opens, and I don’t think anyone will repeat it. Over the last 15 years, even though he tells me it’s 14 because he couldn’t compete last year, he’s achieved an incredible milestone and already has an important place in Australian Open history.”
