Djokovic hopeful of avoiding wrist issues in Israel: "I practiced two hours and everything was OK"

Novak Djokovic admitted after the Laver Cup that he dealt with wrist soreness during the event leaving him a bit worried for the rest of the season.

Wrist injuries can be exceedingly difficult to manage, as Dominic Thiem's recent struggles have shown, albeit Matteo Berrettini's recovery from wrist surgery earlier this year went considerably more smoothly. It's still most that Djokovic will try to avoid after experiencing soreness.

Djokovic didn't know why he was sore, but he thought it was from playing challenging tennis after a lengthy hiatus, which is certainly plausible. He verified that the wrist is fine even after a two-hour practice in Israel where he'll compete in the Tel Aviv Open.

"I practiced for almost two hours and everything was OK. I feel good and I am happy that mini injury is behind me. Knock on wood, I hope it stays that way."

Djokovic will hope it remains that way but he'll know more after he actually plays a couple of matches. He starts tomorrow.
