Novak Djokovic Is Happy.

Write Novak Djokovic at your own risk! This is the warning given by tennis analyst and commentator Marc Petche ahead of Roland Garros.

In the year Djokovic has struggled in recent weeks after winning his 10th Australian Open title in 2023 to move level with Rafael Nadal at 22 Grand Slams.

The world No. 1 was stunned by Lorenzo Musetti in the quarter-finals on his comeback at the Monte Carlo Masters after missing the sunny doubles in Indian Wells and Miami.

He struggled with an elbow injury in the lead-up to last week’s Srpska Open and was once again upset in the last eight, this time by Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic.

“I didn’t feel good on the court, my feet were slow and my footwork was difficult, many missed shots, no direction,” said the tennis great on the back of his defeat and shortly after his exit from Banja Luka. He withdrew from the upcoming Madrid Open..

The Italian Open on May 8 is the final warm-up event before the French Open and there are concerns that the world No. 1 may be too immature for Paris, considering he has only played four matches on clay so far.

However, former tennis player and current Amazon Prime commentator and commentator Petchey has a warning for those who believe Djokovic may not be in top form at the French Open.

“Anyone who thinks @DjokerNole won’t be in top gear at @rolandgarros simply hasn’t been paying attention for the last 18 years,” he tweeted.

In May, he turned 36, and was tipped to match his age with the Serbian.

Twitter user Matt Gunner responded: “Well, the last 18 years is nowhere near 36 years. However, I really hope you are right. All eyes will certainly be on Rome as he and Rafa give us the assurance we need.

Petchey, who coached Andy Murray early in his career, explained that the best players in the business have a different mindset and always find a way.

“Walking around @andy_murray’s career made me understand the mindset of a champion to a small degree,” he began. “It’s inspiring and amazing what they can overcome and achieve in times of real danger. His runway may be shorter this time, but he’ll make it.
