It seems like there is trouble in paradise as far as the marriage of Novak Djokovic and his wife, Jelena Djokovic, is concerned. Is Novak’s marriage troubled by his support for Maria Sharapova?
In a report from Tennis World, Juan Martin del Potro and Novak Djokovic admitted that they are waiting for the comeback of Maria Sharapova, who was banned for two years from the tennis world after failing in her drug test. Novak and Jelena Djokovic are definitely not experiencing marriage troubles because of his support for Sharapova.
“From my opinion, I see that there was no intention in doing that (doping), because the rules changed this year, but it was an error and mistake that she and her team in a way had to take the consequences and pay for and the suspension is there rightly so,” Djokovic said in a statement.
According to Novak, Sharapova’s actions might not be intentional but there are rules to be followed, which is why he thinks she handled the mistake with dignity after admitting what she did was wrong. “Everybody is waiting for her, I wish all the best to her,” Del Potro said in an interview.
Reports suggest that Sharapova had been taking meldonium since 2006. The drug can increase the blood flow and also improves exercise capacity in athletes.
The rules have reportedly changed which is why Sharapova had to pay for the consequences and accept the suspension given to her and her team. The drug was added to the banned list on September 16, 2015 and the ban took effect on January 1, 2016.
Sharapova apparently admitted that she had been taking meldonium for 10 years because of her magnesium deficiency and a family history of diabetes.
In the meantime, Mirror.co.uk unveiled that Novak proves that he is still number one when it comes to jokes despite losing his tennis crown to Andy Murray.
The 29-year-old tennis player uploaded a video on Instagram with a caption, “Let me play you a song and make you smile 🙂 London here I come!”
In the clip, it seemed like he was playing the piano but he was just faking it.
Novak Djokovic will be playing at the ATP World Tour Finals next week.
