Djokovic wins two 5-setters in a row, in rounds 3 and 4 at the French Open 2024. In both matches he was down 2 sets to 1 but rallied from behind to still win.

Now he's on to the quarter-finals.

He currently has the most Grand Slam titles in men's singles at 24 and if he wins one more he'll surpass the women's all-time champion (Margaret Court) who also has 24.

Unfortunately, Djokovic had to withdraw from the French Open due to the knee injury he had from the 5-setter in the fourth round.

Oh no, Coco!
Gauff gone.
But in three more years she will be her opponent Swiatek's age, with more experience and skill than she has now.
Hope to see it.

Oh no!
He didn't trust me when I casually said that with an aspirin he can be back in no time on the terrain.
Nope, he did not trust me one word.

So he went to the doctor to have the knee meniscus checked. That was an unexpected ball coming.
And they put him in surgery!
In the past day, I had to make some tough decisions after sustaining a meniscus tear during my last match. I’m still processing it all but I am happy to update you that the surgery went well.
I am so appreciative of the team of doctors who have been by my side as well as the overwhelming support I have received from my fans.

So you see? He did not forget us.
While I was taking care of that, or rather attempting to convince Novak of looking into the matter with an optimistic mindset, others, like former medical expert K. Yeshe, even thought out loud that in 24 hrs after the surgery, the tissue is theoretically healed and he can play (again teoretically speaking).

While I say yes to K.Y.'s theory and prophecies, practice shows that maybe in 1-2 months of rest and contemplation on his part, these medical practices can be beneficial to him.

You worry of nothing, Dave! We, his fans, are his best wishers. :geek:

Looks like he will miss Wimbledon this year, but might be back ready to play again for the Olympics and then the US Open.

We'll miss him.

Here is another game you could watch: Carlos Alcaraz vs.Jannik Sinner.
And you know Janik... He won 3 of the matches he played with Djokovic. A new hope!

Alcaraz v Sinner 'the match everybody wants to watch'
He and Sinner will face off on Court Philippe Chatrier - not before 13:30 BST - before Alexander Zverev takes on Casper Ruud in the second semi-final.
And it's worth watching it:
Both players struggled with injury issues in the build-up to the French Open, but they have cruised into the last four, dropping just one set each.
Ah, the British humor...
The battle of tennis' nearly men
They call them seeds.

To recap, the game is on the Tennis Channel at:
1:30 PM BST (UK time),
7:30 AM CT,
5:30 AM your time,
7:30 AM my time.

Since Simona Halep's penalty I stoppped watching games.

Then with rude Djokovic, I was even more turned away from this sport.
But Sinner seems to fare well. 6 - 2, 3 - 6, 1 - 1 .


Enjoy!

Alcaraz has a good play.
Carlos Alcaraz Garfia has been ranked World No. 1 in men's singles by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), and is the current world No. 3.

Janik Sinner is currently ranked World No. 2 in singles by the ATP, and is the current world No. 2.
I'd like Sinner to win, but we'll see. So far Alcaraz is leading.

And also pulled this gem from the net:



When you're the champion, they let you do it ... do anything you want. :popcorn:
