Novak Djokovic has announced that he will not be participating in any other events this year as he seeks to recover well from a nagging injury.
The Serb will miss the US Open next month and the rest of 2017 as he bids to recover from the elbow injury that forced him to withdraw from Wimbledon.
In a statement on his Facebook page Wednesday afternoon, the former world number one confirmed that he was taking the rest of the year to rest and recover.
“It was a decision which had to be made. Wimbledon was probably the toughest tournament of me for feeling the pain which has escalated,” he said.
It is understandable if he wants to rest to recover well but could this be a sign of an impending retirement?
