Novak Djokovic was the great star of the men’s draw at the Mutua Madrid Open that was yet to land in the Spanish capital, after the arrivals of Rafa Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz. And he did it this Saturday to later carry out his first training session at the Caja Mágica.
The number one in the world practiced for an hour and a half on court 7, starting at 5:30 p.m., together with Pablo Carreño from Gijón, with a large audience following the practice of the two tennis players.
Djokovic, who will debut on Tuesday in the morning session against the Spanish Carlos Gimeno or the Frenchman Gael Monfils, arrived accompanied by his coach, Goran Ivanisevic, his physio, Ulises Badio, and his two agents, Elena Capellaro and Edoardo Artaldi. The Balkan, who returns to Mutua after a year of absence, was champion of the tournament in 2019 and before that he had been in 2011 and 2016.
