Ex-first racket of the world Novak Djokovic was forced to miss a significant section of the second part of the season.
Damage of the elbow Djokovic received in the quarterfinal match of Wimbledon against Tomas Berdych. Early in the second set with the score (6:7, 0:2), the Serb refused to continue the fight.
Award-winning tennis player went to Toronto for a consultation. According to “Sport Klub”, the doctors came to the conclusion that Djokovic doesn’t need surgery, but he needs a pause in his career.
This week Djokovic will gather a press conference and announce his decision. It is expected that the Serb will miss 12 weeks and will return to court only at the end of the season.
For the three months Djokovic will lose a significant portion of its rating, the fourth racket of the world will not play in US Open and will also miss three masters (Montreal, Cincinnati and Shanghai).
The decline in the career of Novak Djokovic began after a debut victory at Roland Garros. In this season, the Serb has issued two titles (Doha and Eastbourne), and the tournament of Grand slam beyond the quarterfinals did not go.
