◼️ The Serbian has not been able to return to his level after the elbow operation; Edmund defeated him 6-3, 2-6 and 6-3.
Novak Djokovic, who continues to try to recover without a better level, without success for now, fell in the second round of the Madrid Masters 1000 against British Kyle Edmund, Wednesday, losing by 6-3, 2-6 and 6-3.
The Serbian, ex-number 1 of the world dropped to 12th place in the ATP ranking, accumulates discrete results in the last two years and has not managed to confirm his improvement, two days after his hopeful victory against the Japanese Kei Nishikori.
This defeat to the 22nd in the world sows even more doubts about his chances, three weeks away from Roland Garros (May 27-June 10).
Before Madrid, Djokovic had been eliminated in his first match in his previous tournament, in Barcelona. The Belgrade tennis player missed the second half of the 2017 season due to an elbow pain and in February underwent an operation.
