No, it was not a glamorous evening at Geneva's Stade de Genève. YB beat Servette 1-0 and became Swiss champions for the 17th time, but with 13,224 spectators, the arena was not even half full. However, one very prominent guest was missing from the Geneva court: Novak Djokovic.

The world number one in men's tennis will play in Geneva this week, where he will participate in competitions for the first time on Wednesday. The record Grand Slam winner will certainly want to get some playing practice ahead of the French Open in Paris and, above all, gain self-confidence.

Lately, Djokovic has not been going his way. He has not won a tournament since November, and the clay court season has been a drag so far: he has won just four matches since the start of April. The Serbian also made headlines in Roma after being hit in the head by a bottle, which he later blamed for his early defeat.

In Geneva, football fan Djokovic insisted on seeing the match live on the field again. For the self-confessed Milan fan, this was not the first visit to Geneva's Stade de Genève. The 36-year-old attended a Servet match in 2014. At that time, Djokovic came to the Challenger League match against Vaduz because left-back Neven Markovic, a close friend, was playing for Servet at the time. (before)
