According to reports, Novak Djokovic might be unable to defend his Miami title next week due to ongoing issues with his right elbow.
After his two losses Wednesday at Indian Wells, Djokovic is said to have flown back to Monte Carlo to get further tests done on his elbow. A month ago during Davis Cup, Djokovic was dealing with shoulder issues.
