If you missed the Davis Cup coverage today on the Tennis Channel, here’s video from the Serbia-Argentina fourth rubber during which Novak Djokovic had to retire against Juan Martin Del Potro.
In the third game of the second set, Djokovic re-aggravated the back injury he first had during the US Open.
You can see Djokovic fall to the court in pain before being helped back to the chair by his teammates. Tennis Channel’s Brett Haber and Justin Gimelstob had the call.
It’s already been a long season for Djokovic who at this point is 63-3 with 10 titles including three Grand Slams! Let’s hope he recovers in time to complete his incredible season.
Djokovic and Serbia were trying to defend their 2010 Davis Cup title.
