New York | Djokovic to undergo surgery?

The New York Times is reporting that Novak Djokovic is expected to undergo minor surgery in Switzerland to his left shoulder following his retirement at the US Open last week

In February last year, the Serbian world number one underwent a similar small operation to his elbow and it looks like he might have to go under the knife for a second time.

Following his fourth round exit to Stan Wawrinka, Djokovic was going to rest and return to the fray at the Japan Open in Tokyo but this now looks unlikely and he is reassessing his schedule following a tiring season which has seen him collect two Grand Slam titles, the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

His epic final at The Championships when he twice recovered from match points down to defeat his rival Roger Federer, is believed to be the match where he initially picked up the injury that has got worse progressing through the field at Flushing Meadows.

Djokovic who is trailing the other two members of the Big Three in overall terms of grand slam titles won – he holds 16 to Rafa Nadal’s 19 and Federer’s record of 20 –will be keen to return to full fitness for next year’s season as he has made it clear he wishes to overtake them. To achieve that he could well decide to bring the curtain down on this season in order to be fresh for his defence of the Aussie title.
