The Serbian star has endured a traumatic year after returning from long-term injury.

Since undergoing elbow surgery, the 31-year-old has struggled to find form and fitness on the court.

And after looking close to a proper comeback at the French Open this week, Djokovic was knocked out this evening at the quarter-final stages at Roland Garros.

Unseeded Italian Marco Cecchinato has surprised everyone throughout the tournament and dumped Djokovic out in four sets.

After losing 6-3 7-6 1-6 7-6, Djokovic then said: “I don’t know if I’m going to play on the grass.”

The incredible claim came in his short press conference after the defeat in France.

Djokovic is said to have held his press conference in a smaller interview after refusing to go into the main room.

He apparently offered no more than a few words for each answer and then walked out after just a a couple of questions in Serbian.

And it seems as though Djokovic could miss Wimbledon altogether, with the tournament getting underway in early July.

The former world No.1 has now failed to deliver on countless occasions this year at the likes of the Miami Masters and Madrid Open.

Suprise-package Cecchinato, meanwhile, said: “Are you sure [I won]? Maybe I am sleeping. 

“It’s amazing. It’s unbelievable for me. I am very happy because it is unbelievable to beat Novak Djokovic at a quarter-final in Roland Garros.

“I started very well on my serve and, phew… I was so tired, but I won the match… amazing.

“It is the first time in a semi-final in a Grand Slam. Now I need to think for the semi-final, summarise for recovery and I am very happy.”
