Tennis superstar Novak Djokovic has revealed that the London attacks won’t affect his preparation or attendance at next month’s Wimbledon.
7 people were killed and almost 50 injured when van rammed into pedestrians on London Bridge. Three attackers with knives charged out and stabbed others nearby.
“Everything will progress the same in terms of my plans for Wimbledon and I will try to go there with family, and of course be conscious,” Djokovic said at the French Open.
“I think it’s always about being conscious of what time of the day or night you go, where do you go, but, you know, it’s very unpredictable.”
Police, who fired about 50 bullets, shot dead the three male assailants in the Borough Market area near London Bridge within eight minutes of receiving the first emergency call shortly after 10 p.m.
“It’s very disturbing that one of the biggest cities in the world, most important cities in the world, some of the most popular locations in the town suffering these terrorist attacks,” said Djokovic.
“So of course it makes you wonder a little bit, makes you question certain things.
“I mean, if we live in fear, you know, that’s not life. I also believe that you kind of attract, you know, certain things that when you are, you know, living under stress and fear of everything,” he said.
Wimbledon, the year’s third grand slam, runs from July 3 to July 16.
