‘Can’t wait’: Tennis fans erupt over Novak Djokovic announcement



Novak Djokovic has sent tennis fans into a frenzy after announcing he will play singles and doubles on his return to the ATP Tour at the Paris Masters.



Fans have been waiting seven long weeks to see Djokovic back in action after last playing in the US Open final in September.



And now they will get to see him twice as much after the World No.1 entered the doubles draw as well as the singles in Paris.



Djokovic will be aiming to bounce back from his setback in New York, where he had the chance to secure a calendar-year grand slam and claim the 21st career slam title that would take him past Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.



However he fell to a straight-sets defeat to Daniil Medvedev in the final before withdrawing from Indian Wells in the aftermath.

The 34-year-old will be the top seed at the Masters 1000 event in Paris, where he is a five-time champion.



He will team up with countryman Filip Krajinovic with an eye on some doubles practice ahead of the Davis Cup at the end of November.

“He’s going to play with Krajinovic, his buddy from the Davis Cup,” tournament director Guy Forget told reporters.
