John McEnroe, a former world champion, thinks that Novak Djokovic of Serbia suffered an injury at the French Open as a result of bad scheduling.

With up to 24 Grand Slam victories under his belt, the 36-year-old is considered the best male tennis player in Open history.Djokovic’s season is not going well. He is still not a finalist.

The renowned pundit and former world number one McEnroe was recently featured in a piece criticizing the Roland Garros administration for the injuries the star from Belgrade sustained.

“It was a terrible mistake on the part of the organization to put Djokovic, 37, on the court at 10:30 PM [against Musetti in the third round], not knowing how long his match would last,” he remarked.

They were in a tough predicament, and the weather was terrible. Although I can see their desire to catch up, there were other ways to end the other match (Bergs vs. Dimitrov).

Djokovic played back-to-back five-setters before withdrawing from the tournament. In the third round of the grand tournament, the Serbian tennis player overcame Lorenzo Musetti of Italy with scores of 7-5, 6-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-0.

In the fourth round, he defeated Francisco Cerundolo of Argentina with scores of 6-1, 5-7, 3-6, 7-5, and 6-3.

Following the news, Italy’s Jannik Sinner is expected to overtake Djokovic as the top player in the ATP rankings. When the rankings are updated following the conclusion of the French Open, the Italian tennis player will formally assume the top spot.
