So now that I’m here I could say that I am as well-prepared as I possibly can be and I’m excited to, again, be on the tour. That’s all I’m feeling at the moment”
Djokovic fans will be eager to watch the world No.1 back in action after a long time and will be looking forward to him playing many more tournaments in the coming times
