Djokovic ends season
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.
