Djokovic will recover nearly a month


Novak Djokovic severely sprained his ankle during a Davis Cup match against the USA, which was eventually won by Nole and brought the Serbs spot in the semifinals.

But victory was a Pyrrhic - after the initial medical examinations the prognosis is world № 1 to be absent from the courts between 10 days and one month, reported .

"The tests of the ankle of Djokovic revealed that he will have to give forced vacation within 10 to 30 days. He played his game, feeling very serious pain, but I do not think it will affect negatively of the injury and I don't think it will jeopardize his career, "said Momcilo Jakovljevic - the doctor who did the tests.

There is still no official announcement of Nole and his team, but even optimistic predictions come true of the doctor i.e. to be absent ten days, this means that Djokovic will not participate in the Masters in Monte Carlo.

If the world's № 1 is not able to play in tournaments for a period of one month, then Nole will be ready to play eventual for the Madrid Masters, which begins on May 5, or in the worst case in Rome Masters, taking place week later. In any case, the preparation of Djokovic for the season on clay is severely impaired and this could prove fatal to his ambitions to make this season one of the few unrealized dreams - a title at Roland Garros.

However Nole holds out hope that he can return to the court as early as next week in Monte Carlo, but if his condition will allow this? "After the tests I am positive and along with my team will do everything possible to recover and be ready for the tournament. This is me during physiotherapy," Djokovic wrote on his Facebook profile.
