Novak Djokovic officially withdrew from next week’s Cincinnati Masters due to a left wrist injury. The event is the only Masters tournament he hasn’t won.
“I am very sad to announce that I won’t be able to play this year in Cincinnati at the Western & Southern Open,” Djokovic said. “I have a recurring injury that has taken its toll on my body due to a very busy and active schedule this year. I have played many matches and I have to take some rest in order to heal. I always have my hopes high on returning to Cincinnati and winning the only trophy I am missing in the Masters Series.”
Since completing his career Slam at the French Open, Djokovic has won one of his last three events, losing to Sam Querrey in the third round at Wimbledon and then getting stunned by Juan Martin del Potro in first round at the Rio Olympics Sunday night.
