Djokovic Battles Through Injury, Wins Epic Five-Set Marathon at French Open

Posted : 04 June 2024

Novak Djokovic defied the odds once again at the French Open, overcoming a knee injury and a four-set deficit to defeat Francisco Cerundolo in a grueling five-set match. However, the win came at a cost, with Djokovic unsure if the injury will allow him to continue in the tournament.


The world number one battled through four hours and 39 minutes of intense play, marking his second consecutive five-set comeback at Roland Garros. While he acknowledged discomfort in his knee for several weeks, a slip during the second set seemed to aggravate the injury. Despite contemplating withdrawal, Djokovic managed to finish the match without pain, thanks in part to painkillers.


Djokovic faces a race against time to recover for his upcoming quarter-final clash against Casper Ruud. With a potential record 371st career win on the line, the champion remains focused but acknowledges the lingering injury concerns. Tests are scheduled to determine his ability to continue his pursuit of a 25th Grand Slam title.
