Hobbled Djokovic questionable for Monte Carlo

Updated: April 9, 2013


Novak Djokovic’s status for next
week’s Masters event in Monte Carlo is uncertain after tests on his right
ankle revealed a “joint structure strain” that will require rest and therapy.

The world’s top tennis player had an MRI Tuesday morning that revealed no
structural damage to the joint capsule or ligaments.

Djokovic is a two-time Monte Carlo runner-up, including last year against
former world No. 1 star Rafael Nadal, the reigning eight-time champion.

The Australian Open titlist Djokovic injured the ankle on Sunday during his
Davis Cup quarterfinal-clinching win against American Sam Querrey, sending
Serbia into the semifinals against Canada in September.
