He chose to remain tight-lipped on details of Boris Becker’s court case.

“I just hope he will go through this period that he has to be in jail and that when he comes out he’s, you know, being able to live his life as, I don’t know if we’ll use the word ‘normal,’ because the life is definitely changing,” he added.

“I just pray for him. I hope things will be well in terms of his health, his mental health, because that’s going to be the most challenging part.” Djokovic further added.

Djokovic is looking to make the most of the French Open warmup event Madrid Open ahead of the ultimate showdown later this month.
