Novak Djokovic unsure over whether he will play at Wimbledon after French Open exit

Novak Djokovic crashed out of the French Open and then cast doubt over whether he will play at Wimbledon.

The 12-time Grand Slam winner was stunned in the quarter-finals at Roland Garros by world No 72 Marco Cecchinato.

Italian Cecchinato won in four sets, scrambling over the line in an epic tie-break on his fourth match point.

Afterwards a dazed Djokovic, who has struggled with injury for much of the last year, was asked when he planned to make his first grass-court appearance.

He replied: “I don’t know. I don’t know if I’m going to play on grass. I don’t know. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I just came from the court. Sorry, guys, I can’t give you that answer. I cannot give you any answer.

“How do I regroup? I don’t know. I’m just not thinking about tennis at the moment.”

The Serbian needed lengthy treatment on a neck problem after dropping the first set.

Cecchinato had not won a single Grand Slam match until he arrived at Roland Garros, but the 25-year-old is now the first Italian to reach the semi-final since Corrado Barazzutti 40 years ago after sealing a famous 6-3 7-6 (7-4) 1-6 7-6 (13-11) victory.

He said: “Maybe I’m sleeping. It’s amazing. It’s unbelievable for me. For me to beat Djokovic in a quarter-final at Roland Garros it’s amazing.

“For me, it’s the first time semi-final grand slam. Now I need to think for the semi-final and I need some rest for recovery. I am very happy.”
