After his defeat in the final of the Rolex Paris Masters, Novak Djokovic found himself at the heart of a new controversy. It is an amateur video filmed during his semi-final against Tsitsipas and published on social networks that questions. Indeed, as in Wimbledon, tennis fans are intrigued by the content of the bottles of the champion.
On this video, we can see a member of the player’s staff preparing a “magic potion” for Djokovic, which is actually not so rare to see on the Tour. But for some, the images seem suspicious. As a result, the 35-year-old player is accused of doping. Enough to put John Millman out of his mind.
“Too much attention on a team member mixing sports drinks… A ridiculous idea that something is going on, a full stadium, cameras everywhere, mixed drinks in the players’ box… I mean, use some logic here, maybe, just maybe they don’t want to give anyone the edge. To add to that, inside a locker room, you see a team of players always making drinks, in unmarked bottles and put in the refrigerator. Training programs, supplement intake, etc. is trade secret,” the number 155 in the ATP rankings railed on Twitter.
The Djokovic clan had already come out of silence through the player’s wife. “I don’t see anything fishy. In fact, I see people trying to keep their business private in a world where everyone thinks they have the right to point a camera at you whenever they want. Apparently wanting/trying to be private makes you questionable these days,” Jelena Djokovic announced on her Twitter account.
