Novak Djokovic has urged Nicolas Jerry to fight his provisional suspension for alleged doping.

The Serb says he doesn’t believe the Chilean has intentionally done anything wrong.

Jerry was tested positive for anabolic agent ligandrol and anabolic steroid stanozolol.

He will learn his fate at an ITF hearing.

“Look, one of my best friends in life, Viktor Troicki, was suspended for 18 months, without positive in any substance,” Djokovic told La Tercera.

“I know how difficult that journey was for him. I was with him always supporting him, because I knew what had happened and I had no doubt that he was innocent. For Viktor it was a huge injustice.”
