Novak Djokovic’s attempt to clinch Serbia’s tie over the USA is serious doubt right now. The World No. 1 significantly turned his right ankle during a point with Sam Querrey who was serving 15-40, 1-2 in the fourth rubber about an hour ago.
Djokovic continued on with the point only after slumping to the court in pain and distress. Djokovic, who lost the point, received treatment before returning. He eventually broke Querrey then after getting re-broken, broke the American again at 5-5.
The match is still going on and Djokovic is continuing to struggle with the ankle. Right now Novak is serving 3-4 in a tight second set.
If Novak wins Serbia will beat the Americans 3-1.
Djokovic is expected to play Monte Carlo starting next Monday.
Here’s Djokovic’s post-match interview where he says he probably would have stopped have it been a regular tournament (interview at 5 min mark):
