Novak Djokovic beaten in doubles for his return to competition in Cincinnati

Rarely has a doubles match in the first round of the Cincinnati Masters 1000 attracted so many people to the stands. For his return to competition, a month after his defeat in the Wimbledon final, Novak Djokovic and his compatriot Nikola Cacic were opposed to the pair Jamie Murray-Michael Venus, specialists in doubles.

If they lost in two sets (6-4, 6-2) and barely more than an hour of play, the two Serbs at least allowed the world number 2 to find his marks on the American courts, him who had not played there for two years, for lack of being vaccinated against Covid-19. The public will have been treated to an appetizer before the entry into the running of Novak Djokovic, in singles, Wednesday against the Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.
