Novak Djokovic urged to retire after pulling out of French Open injured

Novak Djokovic has been urged to retire by Express Sport readers after pulling out of the French Open ahead of his quarter-final showdown with Casper Ruud. The 37-year-old aggravated a knee issue during his five-set thriller with Francisco Cerundolo in the last 16 after being forced to play until 3.07am.Djokovic is one of the greatest players to ever set foot on a tennis court and has won a record 24 men’s Grand Slam titles.

He would have fancied his chances of extending that run at this year’s Roland Garros after battling his way through to the last eight. But instead of taking to the court against Ruud, he underwent an operation to mend a medial meniscus ligament tear.
