Novak Djokovic Takes A Time Out For Madrid Open…Again

Novak Djokovic Takes A Time Out For Madrid Open…Again

Novak Djokovic is playing it smart knowing that as he holds on to the number one spot in the world, there’s no need to kill himself at every open. So, the tennis star is dropping out of the Madrid open again to focus on winning the French Open for the first time. The roll that he’s been on, it won’t be as a surprise to anyone if he takes that title too. Djokovic has set his sites on winning everything he can, and he’s not letting anyone stop him…even himself.

Many are already noting that it’s a smart move as he doesn’t have anything to prove with the Madrid Open and this gives him some downtime along with French Open practice time. He’ll be back for the Rome Open in less than two weeks and then the Roland Garros in less than a month.

The World No1 Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from the Madrid Open for a second consecutive year to rest before the Rome Masters and the French Open, organisers of the next week’s Masters event said on Wednesday.

“The Serb announced that … he will take time out to rest before continuing with his planned calendar at the Rome and Roland Garros tournaments,” a statement on the Madrid Open’s official site said.

Djokovic has been in imperious form this year, following up his triumph at the Australian Open with victories at the Masters events in Miami, Indian Wells and Monte Carlo.

With Rafael Nadal yet to get back to top form after illness and injury, many expect Djokovic to end the Spaniard’s reign on clay at the French Open, the only one of the four slams the Serb has yet to win.
