Novak Djokovic Responds To Question About What's In His Water Bottle

Novak Djokovic Responds To Question About What's In His Water Bottle

Novak Djokovic's antics at Wimbledon left people confused earlier this week when the world number three appeared to inhale the contents of his water bottle.

During his quarterfinal bout with Jannik Sinner, Djokovic sat down and was handed a white sports bottle. He then appeared to ask someone off camera what was in the bottle before squeezing it and seemingly firing something into his mouth.

Even more bonkers was Djokovic’s response to what exactly the bottle contained.

According to Djokovic himself, it's 'magic potion', he reiterated today, 8 July.

As BBC correspondent Laura Scott tweeted, when asked about the drink, Djokovic replied: "Magic potion, that is all I can say."

The whole exchange really confused a lot of tennis fans watching back at home. Writing on Twitter, one viewer said: "What’s in the white bottle? it didn’t look like a drink."

Another chipped in: "What is in the bottle? I swear he inhales it."

"What’s in Djokovic’s white plastic bottle? Didn’t look like he was drinking from it," asked a third.

While another added: " What was Djokovic inhaling from that white ‘water’ bottle?"

LADbible has approached Djokovic’s representatives for comment. 

Djokovic actually employed the same tactic back in 2020 during the final of the Australian Open, when he defeated Dominic Thiem in another five-set match.

When asked about that damned white bottle in a post-match press conference, Djokovic gave another interesting answer. 

Smiling at the journalist, he said: "The liquids were magic potions that my physio prepares in his lab. That's all I can say."

The journalist who asked the question revealed that it appeared as though Novak was doing the same thing at Wimbledon.

Retweeting a clip of him once again drinking from the white bottle, Jannik Schneider said: "Novak Djokovic's team has mixed a drink or powder for him in the stands this fortnight and used a ballboy to deliver it mid-match. Saw this also in rd1 vs Struff. He uses a straw for it. I asked him about it.

“The ‘magic powder’ from Aus Open 2020 is back. This time without a drinking straw."

Unfortunately, magic potion aside, Djokovic didn't put on the polished performance many have come to expect from him, with Sinner easing through the first two sets.

However, following a toilet break and a pep talk, Novak returned to win the final three sets.
