He can also pee under pressure: Novak Djokovic ignores umpire, but miraculously returns from catacombs in time

Novak Djokovic (ATP 5) made no mistake in the first round of the Australian Open. The 35-year-old Serbian settled in the Rod Laver Arena after two hours of play in three sets with Spaniard Roberto Carballes Baena (ATP 75). Djokovic caused a delay in the first set. He wanted to go to the toilet, but was denied permission by the umpire. Then he went to the toilet on his own. “I shout ‘time’ in 15 seconds”, it sounded. Djokovic eventually came back onto the field quickly enough to avoid a penalty.

In the second round, Djokovic will meet the winner of the duel between the Frenchman Hugo Dellien (ATP 131) and the Bolivian Enzo Couacaud (ATP 191). They will only play their first round on Wednesday.

Djokovic is the record holder at the Australian Open with nine final victories. Last year he was unable to participate because his visa was revoked by the Australian Immigration Minister due to his refusal to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. The Serb was locked up in a quarantine hotel for several days and was eventually deported from the country.
