# Tennis: Ten-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic is fighting a battle against time to be ready for the defense of his title. He injured his wrist during the United Cup team championship in Perth, Australia, where he was beaten by local player Alex de Minaur yesterday. This was the world number one’s first defeat in the country since 2018, where he won his previous 43 games. The year’s first Grand Slam tournament starts in Melbourne next Sunday, and will be played over 15-days for the first time.
