Djokovic suggested that if people watch the documentary it might calm criticism from skeptics who claimed his injury was not as serious as originally thought.

I've shot a lot of things that I've done here, but also in the past few months, six months We plan to get this documentary out later this year. You will be able to see more of the routine of recovery, things that went on behind the curtain. "
