21-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic has returned to action at the Laver Cup 2022, making his second tournament appearance. Djokovic was part of Team Europe where the Big-4 came together for the first time. "I've been fighting with my right wrist for four to five days, to be honest. I kept it under control. Yesterday's two matches probably had an effect. Today has not been easy. I couldn't serve as fast or as accurately as I would like," Djokovic told reporters after his loss.

Djokovic returned to action after an absence from the tour of more than 2 months. He had not played since winning the Wimbledon 2022 Championships in July. The Serbian player, however, revealed that he is full confident in his level but is worried about his wrist for the rest of the season.

"Maybe not playing almost three months of games, and then the conditions here are such that the balls are really big and slow. You always have to generate a lot of action and speed on the wrist, which could be why I felt pain in my right wrist. I'm not worried about my level, but I'm a bit for the wrist. I will try to take care of it with my physio, to be ready for my first match in Tel-Aviv."

The Laver Cup comes to an end today, ending a thrilling 3-day event and also the glorious career of Roger Federer. Despite the criticism, Djokovic will travel to Israel for the Tel Aviv Open from September 26 and will play singles and doubles. Djokovic will partner with local boy Jonathan Erlich who will be retiring from professional tennis soon. Djokovic and Erlich had combined for the 2010 Queen's Club title.
