Australian Open: Fears for Novak Djokovic as practice session is CANCELLED

Fears for Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open as his practice session is CANCELLED for a second day in a row – raising concerns he could become the next star to withdraw amid hamstring struggles

  • Novak Djokovic has scrapped his Australian Open practice session on Monday
  • It is the second day in a row the Serbian star has cancelled a warm-up session
  • The World No 5 struggled with a hamstring issue at the Adelaide International

Novak Djokovic has cancelled his Australian Open practice session on Monday – sparking fears he could become the latest star to withdraw from the tournament.

The fifth seed, who struggled with a hamstring issue at the tune-up Adelaide International tournament earlier in January, has now scrapped practice for the second day in a row.

Djokovic, 35, is set to play his first-round match against Roberto Carballes Baena on Tuesday morning UK time. 

Tournament organisers revealed on Monday morning British time that Djokovic’s session, which was due to begin at 7pm local time/8am GMT, had been taken off the official schedule.

The news comes after a ‘devastated’ Nick Kyrgios pulled out of his home tournament on Monday because of a knee injury.
