Injured Djokovic looks likely to miss US Open
NOVAK Djokovic’s elbow injury is likely to force the former world No. 1 to miss the US Open, Serbian newspaper Sportski Zurnal has reported.
Serbian doctor Zdenko Milinkovic told the paper Djokovic would need to rest for six to 12 weeks, effectively ruling him out for the rest of the ATP Tour season.
“Symptoms have calmed down. He was with a specialist in Toronto for additional tests,” Milinkovic said.
“Now it’s important to look at the different types of procedures that can affect recovery.”
Djokovic last appeared on court in a Wimbedon quarterfinal, where he was unable to continue against Czech republic star Tomas Berdych.
The paper reports that the injury worsened the more Djokovic played.
Djokovic will address his situation at media conference in Belgrade this week.
