Novak Djokovic was pictured training at the All England Club on Sunday but the Serbian star remains uncertain over whether he will compete at Wimbledon.

Djokovic was forced to withdrew from the French Open following his fourth-round victory over Francisco Cerundolo due to injury.

Djokovic underwent surgery on his right knee in Paris 18 days ago after he tore his medial meniscus and now needs to wait and see if it has hailed enough in time for him to play at Wimbledon.

Wimbledon’s social media accounts shared photos of Djokovic on Sunday night, welcoming the seven-time champion.

‘A seven-time champion appears,’ Wimbledon wrote on X.

Djokovic was pictured with a support on his right knee and right elbow, but will have a week to recover further ahead of the start of Wimbledon on July 1.

The 37-year-old wants to avenge his previous men’s final defeat against tennis prodigy Carlos Alcaraz who earned a stunning first Wimbledon title in four sets last year.

Djokovic has won an astonishing seven career Grand Slams at Wimbledon and is regarded as one of tennis’ greatest-ever grass court players and would be a huge miss if he doesn’t compete in this year’s edition of the tournament. 

He has featured in the past five finals and is working hard to extend that record, but whether the veteran will be lining up amongst his rivals when Wimbledon starts on July 1 is yet to be seen.

Two videos recently shared by the serial major champion on social media shows Djokovic going through a series of drills in the gym that are being used to judge his fitness and recovery from surgery.

One of the video montages shows Djokovic going through a personal plan of light exercises that combine resistance tools with his own body weight and test the knees.

He looks comfortable and free of pain while completing the routines with his team monitoring results around him and family members also showing their support.

Djokovic ends one of the videos by showing himself back on a tennis court, beaming at the camera and hitting a series of shots over the net to his trainer.

Updating his 14.6m Instagram followers on his condition, Djokovic said: ‘I missed you. We keep building day by day. Mood socks activated….’.
