Novak Djokovic is now training legally in Marbella and is out on the track
World No.1 Novak Djokovic is already back to training and was seen out on the track at the Puente Romano Club in Marbella on Monday.
The Serb could be seen taking his training to the next level as Covid-19 de-escalation continues in Marbella, a town in Malaga, Spain. Djokovic, however, has done all this legally with the rules on his side.
Djokovic’s recent training activity at the club was reported by the newspaper Sur. The player even posted the video of himself shirtless training on his Instagram account with the caption: “100x double jump rope challenge”.
The 17-time Grand Slam winner had earlier caught himself in an impasse after training with Spanish tennis player Carlos Gómez Herrera at the same facility with the permission of the club.
The event occurred just two weeks back due to a misinterpretation of the rules in force during phase 0 by the Puente Romano Club. The club thought that they could the World No.1 to play on one of its tracks.
