Novak Djokovic faces financial nightmare as enormous sum to be lost by key sponsor emerges

But he will now have to find a new supplier for the remainder of the 2022 season, with the Troyes-based manufacturer set to withdraw from their agreement.

Djokovic, who recently split up with his long-term coach Marian Vajda, has also recently lost a sponsorship deal with Peugeot following the debacle Down Under. 

The Serbian finally got his season up and running when he played at the Duty Free Tennis Championships in Dubai where he fell at the quarter-final hurdle to Jiri Vesely.

It is unclear if he will play at Indian Wells in California this month, but Djokovic has been included in the draw despite the non-US citizens having to prove their vaccination against Covid to travel into the country.

In a statement, tournament organisers said: “Novak Djokovic is on the tournament entry list, and therefore is placed into the draw today. We are currently in communication with his team; however, it has not been determined if he will participate in the event by getting CDC approval to enter the country.”
