Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic recently played a practice match against each other in Turin ahead of the 2023 ATP Finals, just like they did ahead of the Paris Masters as well. However, a particular action that the Serb’s team took after the practice match has led to a lot of speculation on the internet.

Alcaraz and Djokovic greeted and hugged each other after meeting on the court and then proceeded to play a practice match that went on for around thirty minutes. After the match, the Spaniard was seen packing up and he left the court immediately. However, when Djokovic sat down on the bench, his team stood in front of him in a synchronized manner so as to hide what was happening. 

It is estimated that the Serb ace did not want the cameras to capture how his godfather and physiotherapist, Miljan Amanović massaged his left hand. However, it is highly unlikely that Djokovic has a serious injury because, after that, the two players just went to the central court of the Pala Alpitur Hall to exchange some more blows. (H/T: Kurir)

The Serb has been placed in the green group of the 2023 ATP Finals while Alcaraz has been placed in the red group. The Spaniard will kick off his tournament with his match against Alexander Zverev on 13th November while Novak Djokovic will take on Holger Rune in his first match.

Novak Djokovic will look to defend his ATP Finals title in Turin 

Djokovic beat Casper Ruud in the final of the 2022 ATP Finals to win the tournament last year. With the form he is currently in, it is highly anticipated that the Serb has a great chance of defending his title at Turin this year. Moreover, he has almost become the year-end World No.1.

The Serb will become the year-end World No.1 by winning just one match in the ATP Finals. Carlos Alcaraz had the opportunity to close the gap during the Asian swing which Djokovic did not participate in. Unfortunately, the Spaniard failed to do so after a major dip in his form following the 2023 Wimbledon Open.
