Nadal-Muller epic keeps Novak Djokovic off court on Monday

A few times during his match against Mannarino, Djokovic stumbled, and at other times, he stooped to clear away divots or clumps of grass.

"Maybe you don't want players to feel that way, because the moment you become scared of moving properly, it's really hard to play, I must admit. It was a bit softer, I would say, especially around a couple of feet inside and outside, around the baseline area", said Djokovic, a three-time champion at the All England Club.

Djokovic had spent Monday night hanging around in the referees' office while Centre Court lay vacant after Gilles Muller finally finished off Rafael Nadal on Court No 1.

"When that was no longer an option, it was determined the match could not be moved to Centre Court due to the number of spectators remaining in the Grounds". The All England Club issued a statement saying that Djokovic vs. Mannarino was not shifted to Centre Court because there were still 30,000 people at the tournament site "and therefore moving the match would have created a significant safety issue".
