Djokovic ready to return to action in Tel Aviv
After missing the entire North American hard court tour, Djokovic is set to return to ATP action in Israel.

After Federer revealed his plans to retire from professional tennis after the Laver Cup, Djokovic paid tribute to him. «Understood, it is difficult to look at this day and put into words all that we have shared together in this sport.
Over a decade of incredible moments and battles to remember. His career has set the standard for what it means to achieve excellence and lead with integrity and poise. It is an honor to meet you on and off the court, and for many years to come,» Djokovic wrote on social media. It remains to be seen how Djokovic will play in his first tournaments after a long break.
