After a dominant start to the clay season with his Monte Carlo title, Novak Djokovic has looked more human this week in Rome, dropping sets in wins over Nicolas Almagro and yesterday against Tomaz Bellucci. But there may be more to Djokovic’s dip in play this week. He is dealing with an arm issue.
Djokovic confirming some right arm discomfort. "It has been bothering me last couple of days" but says "it's not worrying me".

He says it’s no bother and the numbers agree.
Some serving stats:
1st srv win %: 82%
2nd srv win %: 54%
Times broken: 2
1st srv win %: 78%
2nd srv win %: 57%
Times broken: 0
In Monte Carlo, Djokovic won 74% of his first serves and 58% of second. So this week’s serving stats thus far fall in line. Serve speed data was not available, though.
With the French Open so close now, it might be something to keep an eye on. Djokovic’s match with Kei Nishikori is about to begin.
