Novak Djokovic Is Still Struggling With A Shoulder Injury
by Tom Gainey | February 5th, 2017, 5:27 pm

Novak Djokovic scraped through a 4-set win in his Davis Cup opener against Russia Friday. But in doing so, Djokovic was again troubled by his right shoulder, which required treatment in the first set against 20-year-old Daniil Medvedev.

Djokovic won the match 36, 64, 61, 10 after Medvedev retired with cramps. And Serbia took the tie Saturday in the doubles as captain Nenad Zimonjic subbed in for Djokovic to team with Viktor Troicki to clinch the win.

But Djokovic admitted, the shoulder is still an ongoing problem

The Serb will have a month break – he did not enter Dubai, a tournament he has played every year since 2007 – before returning to defend Indian Wells and Miami. But the shoulder, which has been an issue for since the summer, is the concern.

Wog Boy Says:

Best way to fix injury (shoulder) is to go skiing very next day after the DC match;)
Nole doesn’t have a worry in the world, check the video in this link (and pictures), he made video himself in the chair lift with entire family (parents and brothers) while they were going to the top of Mt Kopaonik, they are cracking the jokes speak Spanish, Italian, German Serbian scenery is great …tennis? What tennis;)

Video is in this article.

Truth Says:

There you go, Wog Boy. Djoke is mentally ill.
A set and a break down in an event that he supposedly poured sweat & tears for but then he jumps around on the mountain.
Doofuses wonder why Fraud won the aussie after 7 years.

Wog Boy Says:

Truth, “mentally ill” is too harsh, he just lost interest in tennis, it is so obvious since he sounds perfectly happy in that video including all family members (if you could understand Serbian you could feel it), he is doing Borg Serbian way. He is finished with tennis.

Chrisford1 Says:

Djokovic is gonna go skiing and basketball like Rafa is gonna do boating and fishing on vacation…vexing injury or not. That is who they are.
