Novak Djokovic’s participation at the 2024 Wimbledon Championships is still not confirmed.

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic has arrived in London amid reports of him missing the grass court Grand Slam.

Earlier this month, Djokovic suffered a meniscus tear in his right knee after he slipped in the second set during his fourth round fixture against Francisco Cerundolo at the 2024 French Open. The Serb eventually decided to withdraw from Roland-Garros to avoid a major problem.

Interestingly, he underwent an immediate surgical procedure for the meniscus tear in Paris. Djokovic later took to X (formerly Twitter) to announce that his surgery was successful. However, several reports state that the 37-year-old will miss at least three weeks of action.

One week after surgery, Djokovic started walking without crutches and even working out. He later uploaded a video of his progress on social media. Consequently, it was later affirmed that Novak Djokovic would arrive in London a week before the start of the main draw of the 2024 Wimbledon Championships.

Thus, the Serbian tennis star has made his way to the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. The official X (formerly Twitter) account of Wimbledon shared pictures of the 24-time Grand Slam champion practicing ahead of the grass court major.

However, Djokovic’s participation at the tournament is yet to be confirmed. The Serb will reveal his final status in the upcoming days. Apart from the grass court Grand Slam, Novak Djokovic will also represent Serbia at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Dusan Lajovic will also be playing in the men’s singles event. However, the Serb outright ruled out the possibility of featuring in doubles action as he’s eyeing the men’s singles gold medal, which is lacking in his trophy cabinet.

The tennis events at the 2024 Paris Olympics will take place at Stade Roland Garros. Thus, Djokovic would be required to change surface from grass to clay in a fortnight. In 2023, Novak Djokovic’s 34-match unbeaten streak on Centre Court was broken by Carlos Alcaraz. This season, he will enter the draw as the second seed after Alcaraz failed to defend his title at the Queen’s Club Championships last week.
