In an interview with the Serbian media Sportklub and comments reported by Eurosport, Goran Ivanisevic, after the success of Novak Djokovic at the US Open, suggested that the Serbian could, for the first time since 2019, ignore the Asian tour (Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo): “He should rest and recharge. I don’t think he will go to China, but he will have to play at least one tournament before the Turin Masters (November 12-19 in Turin). Maybe Paris-Bercy (October 30-November 5.”

A program which could deprive him of the world No. 1 place at the end of the season (despite 3 major titles) and benefit Carlos Alcaraz who has far fewer points to defend.

In the meantime, Novak Djokovic should participate in the Davis Cup with Serbia, in Malaga. Expected on Wednesday, he could be lined up against Spain on Friday, then the Czech Republic on Saturday.
