Novak Djokovic wins his record 370th Slam match but isn’t sure he can continue at the French Open

Novak Djokovic found himself in a precarious situation during his French Open match on Monday. Suffering from an injured right knee, he was forced to lay on his back while a trainer manipulated his knee, causing him to wince in pain. The thought of having to quit the match crossed his mind as he stumbled and limped around the court, trailing behind his younger opponent after losing the first set.

However, Djokovic managed to regain his composure and fight back with the help of a tournament doctor. He was administered the maximum dose of painkillers allowed to alleviate his discomfort and reduce any inflammation. This boost propelled Djokovic to continue playing, and he ultimately secured a hard-fought victory in five sets, lasting over 4 1/2 hours. With this win, Djokovic notched his record-breaking 370th Grand Slam match win.

Despite his triumph, Djokovic remains uncertain about his future in the tournament. He cannot guarantee his ability to compete in the quarterfinals on Wednesday due to concerns over his lingering injury.
