During a bizarre incident at the Italian Open, a water bottle struck Novak Djokovic on the head.
It is reported that Novak Djokovic has obtained his examination results following a visit to the Emergency Centre for his head injury.
While giving autographs at the Italian Open, the top-ranked player was hit on the head by a metal water bottle that slipped from a fan’s backpack.
After losing his subsequent match, Djokovic mentioned he would undergo testing to determine if the head injury was more serious than anticipated.
Djokovic is investigating a bizarre head injury he sustained at the Italian Open when a water bottle hit him on the head. This incident occurred after his victory over Corentin Moutet in the initial match on Friday.
Following an atypical loss to Alejandro Tabilo on Sunday, where he appeared listless and fell 6-2, 6-3 in merely 67 minutes, the winner of 24 Majors, Djokovic, announced he would undergo medical examinations to assess his head condition.
Republika reports that Djokovic has since visited a hospital in his hometown of Belgrade for precautionary head examinations. The findings revealed no irregularities, which is encouraging news for the 36-year-old as he prepares to defend his French Open title.
The Serb appeared in high spirits and was eager to pose for selfies with fans who requested them. This follows Djokovic being questioned if the incident with the bottle might have affected his subpar performance against the world No. 32, Tabilo.
"I don't know, to be honest. I have to check that. Training was different. I was going for kind of easy training yesterday. I didn't feel anything, but I also didn't feel the same," he said.
"Today under high stress, it was quite bad - not in terms of pain, but in terms of this balance. Just no coordination. Completely different player from what it was two nights ago. Could be. I don't know. I have to do medical checkups and see what's going on," he added.
