The injury that Novak Djokovic get in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon, when he handed over the match to Tomas Berdych, is of a serious nature and the Serbian tennis player will surely miss the US Open.
This statement in the newspaper “Sportski Žurnal” is claimed by Zdenko Milinković, a Serbian tennis player and an orthopedic surgeon.
“Nole will have to rest from six to twelve weeks, depending on how rehabilitation will take place. At that time, he will not be able to practice with the racket, but he can work on the maintenance of the condition. He has a bruise on the basket of over-playing. The problem was time-consuming, but they were training hard and did not allow the wound to heal, so the situation is getting worse, “Milinkovic told Sport Journal.
Considering the fact that the US Open is starting in five weeks, Novak’s chance to appear on the grand slam tournament in New York is minimal. Sources close to the Serbian tennis player say that they would be able to take a break until the end of the year, in order to completely eliminate all the problems they are struggling, and then they are most prepared to enter in 2018.
In that case, Djokovic would definitely fall out of the Top 10 in the ATP list, due to the huge number of points he defends in Shanghai, Paris and the Masters Tournament in London, but in his team they are convinced that Novak will expressly approach the top I would be in top form and I would throw a few tournaments.
