Djokovic ends sea­son

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

No­vak Djokovic on Wed­nes­day con­firmed that he will end his 2017 sea­son early be­cause of an el­bow in­jury which has plagued his game for months. The for­mer No. 1 player, who is ex­pected to fall from the top 10 for the first time in a decade, made the an­nounce­ment on his Face­book page. Djokovic last ap­peared on court in a Wim­ble­don quar­ter­fi­nal against To­mas Berdych, which he was un­able to com­plete. He ex­pects to be out at least five months, dur­ing which he will rest, “strengthen my body and also im­prove cer­tain ten­nis el­e­ments that I have not been able to work on over the past years, due to a de­mand­ing sched­ule,” he said. Djokovic and wife Je­lena are ex­pect­ing the birth of their sec­ond child in the com­ing months.
