Djokovic admitted he doesn’t feel like a favorite at Roland Garros

Serbian world number one Novak Djokovic said he did not feel like a favorite at Roland Garros, noting that poor health played a significant role in the defeat at the Geneva tournament.

On Friday, the 37-year-old tennis player failed to reach the final of the Geneva tournament, losing to Czech Tomas Machac in three sets. Earlier at the Rome Masters, Djokovic lost in the second round to Chilean Alejandro Tabilo, 25th racket in the world.

“I’m worried I’m not playing my best this year.” I had a few good matches, but that’s it. We must accept it. I don’t consider myself a favorite at Roland Garros, I will play match after match and see how far I can go.

My health is terrible, I felt very bad at night because of my stomach, but I have to give Makhach his due, he deserved this victory. Honestly, I don’t know what to think about this match. I want to forget him and move to Paris.

It’s good to have been able to come to Geneva and play not one match, but three. I just need to feel better. When you suffer on the pitch, it’s not fun. You can’t concentrate on tennis when there’s something else going on. “I just hope I can be in good shape for Roland Garros,” Djokovic was quoted as saying by AFP.

Djokovic’s opponent in the first round of Roland-Garros will be Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
