Serbian shares funny moment from Paris on social media
On Friday, the top seed posted a video of himself on social media placing cones around a depression in the gym floor so other players and their teams would avoid the area. That’s because, not realising the surface underneath the cushioning is wood, Djokovic threw a medicine ball down as part of his warmup routine before practice, breaking the wood.
“Today warming up in the gym before my practice I used a medicine ball by slamming it on the floor pretty hard. As a result, I wrecked a wooden floor. @RolandGarros please forgive me!” Djokovic wrote, before replying with a second tweet. “Just FYI I left Paris for several days until the investigation is completed… my participation at RG is maybe under review? ???”
Just fyi I left Paris for several days until the investigation is completed.. my participation at RG is maybe under review? ???
Djokovic, who noted on Instagram that he will ‘pay his dues’, was joking about leaving Paris. Instead, he will try to win his fourth consecutive Grand Slam title. The Serbian begins his tournament against 2018 Next Gen ATP Finals qualifier Hubert Hurkacz.
