Djokovic will benefit from long break, says new physio

Novak Djokovic is recovering from a "significant" elbow injury and is keen to get back on the tour again, the 12-times grand slam champion's new physiotherapist Ulises Badio has said.

A prolonged dip in form before the injury earlier this year forced Djokovic to curtail his season after retiring against Czech Tomas Berdych in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon in July.

Sampras says Nole and Murray will get back to top in 2018

Sampras says Nole and Murray will get back to top in 2018

Pete Sampras has backed Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic to return in 2018 and challenge for the major titles despite struggling in 2017.

The Scot took over the world number one ranking from Djokovic after a blistering run of form that saw him win five titles in a row at the end of last year. But he was unable to maintain that form coming into the new season.

Murray won just one title this year at the Dubai Open and struggled for form in the other events. He lost in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon after struggling with a hip injury and has since indicated that he will not play again in 2017.

Enjoy the good life, Del Potro tells Djokovic

Enjoy the good life, Del Potro tells Djokovic

Juan Martin Del Potro has some advice for 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic as he prepares for a long break from tennis -- stay home and play with the kids.

Del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion from Argentina who has endured long absences while battling nagging wrist injuries, knows all too well the challenge Djokovic faces after announcing last week he would miss the remainder of the year with an elbow injury.

"It's not easy to stop for a long time and come back," Del Potro said. "Many players can play good after a long injury, but they won't play as good (soon after) as they will in the future.

Novak Djokovic might withdrew from the US Open due to a bone bruise in his right elbow.

According to Serbian press, Serbia’s Davis Cup doctor Zdeslav Milinković commented Djokovic needs to be out of the ATP tour 6 to 12 weeks to heal his elbow.

“The most important thing is that Novak is at the moment calm and recovering successfully. The minimum will be paused for six weeks, and it is possible that the recovery will last for 12 weeks. Djokovic will announce on Wednesday a plan for the next period. He goes to therapy and can train, but without a racket.” He said.

He added that the elbow has been an issue for over a year but now has become more serious.
