Djokovic can’t wait to get go­ing

Sport360 - - Australian Open -

Six-time Aus­tralian Open cham­pion No­vak Djokovic says he’s ex­cited to be back af­ter a long in­jury-en­forced break.

The Ser­bian for­mer world No1 has been out of ac­tion for six months and is ready to get back to busi­ness. “I’m just glad to be back play­ing ten­nis, hav­ing an op­por­tu­nity to com­pete yet again in the big tour­na­ments. I’ve missed it,” he said. Djokovic has been side­lined with an el­bow in­jury that had been get­ting worse. “It hasn’t been 100 per cent yet healed. But right now it’s at the level where I can com­pete. Even if it’s 100 per cent, af­ter six months of no com­pe­ti­tion, you never know how you’re go­ing to re­act.”
