Speaking to the press today at the ATP World Tour Finals, top ranked Novak Djokovic reported that his injured right shoulder is back to full strength.

“I have been serving almost 100 per cent in the last two or three days, so for me the shoulder’s fine at this moment and I can say it’s recovered and ready to compete,” Djokovic said who had to withdraw the quarterfinals at Paris last week because of the ailment which has he injured over the summer.

Djokovic is hoping for a second ATP Finals titles to cap what has been a historic season.

“Obviously everybody agrees that this tournament is a crown for all the achievements of the year,” said Djokovic. “Every match that you’re playing is at probably the highest level in our sport, then you have to be on top of your game to win it. Everyone wants to finish the season in great style, that’s what makes this event even more competitive.”

Djokovic will be in action on Monday night against Czech Tomas Berdych in his opening round robin match in Group A.

I never know what to think about Novak’s injuries. Whatever. I try to ignore it all, but when he got whipped by Nishikori and then withdrew in Paris I gave in and figured he must really be hurt. All I can say is go Rog and Rafa. (Mostly Rafa!)
