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.

Djokovic considers break after painful 18 months

Djokovic considers break after painful 18 months

Novak Djokovic is considering taking a break from competitive tennis to recover after a long-standing elbow injury forced him out of Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Nole retired hurt from his quarter-final against Tomas Berdych after he had lost the opening set and was down a break in the second.

Djokovic said his right elbow had been bothering him off-and-for over a year and a half. The injury has coincided with a slump in form during which the former world number one surrendered his Australian and French Open titles this year and slipped to fourth in the world rankings.

Novak Djokovic suffered a right elbow and was forced to retire against Tomas Berdych in the Wimbledon quarterfinal trailing 6-7, 0-2.

The Serbian had to wait until Tuesday to play Adrian Mannarino in the Round of 16 after Gilles Muller’s marathon win over Rafael Nadal.
While Djokovic was victorious in three straightforward sets, he did need medical assistance in the third set for the elbow. Nole was none too happy about the decision to delay the match a day and simply couldn’t hold up health-wise a day later.

Djokovic clearly wasn’t 100 percent and got medical assistance between sets against Berdych, during which the trainer stretched and massaged his arm.

With coaches Andre Agassi and Mario Ancic watching on concerned from the stands.

But the treatment was to no avail, and Djokovic ended the match shortly thereafter, shaking his head as he walked to the net. It’s the first time he’s retired from a slam match since the Australian Open in 2009.

“It’s not the shoulder, it’s the elbow that keeps bothering me,” Djokovic said post-match. “For over a year and a half actually. It’s unfortunate I have to finish Wimbledon in this way. I was able for 30 minutes to play with some pain that was bearable. All the treatments and medication couldn’t help.”

Tomas Berdych will now face Roger Federer in the semifinal.

Q. Going into the second week, who do you think is favorite to win this title?NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I don't know. Honestly, I'm not thinking about it.

Q. Relatively comfortable win. You'll be aware there's a lot of discussion about the courts here. How did you find the surface today?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, the first two matches I didn't see any significant difference. But I was hearing a lot of comments from the other players. They were complaining. Especially on the outside courts.
