Novak Djokovic’s wife answers ‘magic potion’ rumours after mystery drink footage

Novak Djokovic's wife has hit out at social media speculation after something appeared to be added to his water bottle by his physiotherapist at the Paris Masters.

Jelena Djokovic has felt the need to respond after physiotherapist Ulises Badio was seen on camera appearing to add something to a bottle, which was then handed to the Grand Slam icon.

With the Serbian taking a drink from the bottle during his semi-final victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas, fans wondered why his team looked to try and hide the bottle from view while something was added.

While there is no suggestion of wrongdoing, wife Jelena said in response: “(Novak) will talk when he is ready to talk.

"This whole nonsense about making people speak about something they aren’t ready because others are inpatient is absurd.

"Sit a bit in silence. Mind yourself more. Not everything you see is controversial. It could be private. Is that allowed?"

The clip in question has been viewed more than 15 million times since it was retweeted by journalist Damian Reilly, who questioned the secrecy, with some fans asking what was in the 'magic potion".

The footage came after Djokovic was seen appearing to inhale from a bottle during his Wimbledon final victory over Nick Kyrgios.

The 35-year-old, a 21-time Grand Slam winner, said at the time: "You will find out soon but not so soon.

"It’s going to come out as one of the supplement lines that I'm doing right now with drink and few other things, sports drinks etc. It will come out there.

"You’ll try it and you’ll let me know how it feels. You might win Wimbledon…"

The Sun report that ATP and the International Tennis Integrity Agency have no plans to investigate the actions of Djokovic and his team.
