Novak Djokovic could skip Wimbledon after shock exit at Roland Garros

Novak Djokovic could skip Wimbledon after shock exit at Roland Garros

After his four sets loss to Marco Cecchinato at the French Open, Novak Djokovic revealed a possibly shocking news that could happen in the next weeks.

Men's second seed Alexander Zverev survived a scare as he had to save a match point before beating Damir Dzumhur on Friday to reach the fourth round of the French Open.

It was a classic, Djokovic wasting three set points and Cecchinato unable to take the first of three for the match.

In the second set, Verdasco broke in the sixth game and won four consecutive games, dropping just four points to claim the second.

Djokovic was back with his former coach, Marián Vajda, who said Djokovic was not at his best at Roland Garros, but improving.

Resurgent former champion Novak Djokovic reached the French Open quarter-finals for the 12th time on Sunday as he subdued feisty Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco 6-3 6-4 6-2.

American 13th seed Madison Keys also reached her first Roland Garros quarter-final with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu.

Verdasco too failed to break his serve initially before regaining composure and winning four games in a row to take the set 6-2.

According to the site (via Google Translate), one insider sent an Assassin's Creed Odyssey keychain in the form of a Spartan head. The helmet is included inside packaging containing a logo for Assassin's Creed Odyssey , an unannounced Assassin's Creed title.

The 21-year-old played some stunning tennis in the closing stages of a dramatic 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 fourth-round victory and will next face Dominic Thiem who reached a third successive quarter-final in Paris by seeing off Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-2, 6-0, 5-7, 6-4.

In a tense encounter, both men were slapped with code violations for coaching before Cecchinato gallantly saved three set points.

Djokovic, who was sitting in a small press room without mics and just in front of a few journalists (most of them were waiting in the main press room), said he doesn't know whether if he will play Wimbledon next month.

Two years ago, his career was nearly derailed when he became embroiled in match fixing allegations.

"For me, it's the first time semi-final grand slam. Now I beat David Goffin, (who) is one of the best players in the world".

"I definitely thought about it, but I didn't want to pull out for the first time of my career in a Grand Slam quarter-final", said Zverev.

"Then once you get to the second week, every match obviously has more nerves, and there's more on the line".

Even as he conceded the second set, Djokovic managed to regain his composure as he went on to pull off a 6-4 6-7 7-6 6-2 win over Agut in an intriguing third-round battle.
