Monte Carlo Masters: Novak Djokovic set for spell on the sidelines after suffering wrist injury
Six-time Grand Slam champions admits "I cannot play tennis for some time" after defeat to Roger Federer
Saturday 19 April 2014
Six-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic will take a break from tennis to treat his sore right wrist.
Djokovic says "I cannot play tennis for some time. How long, I don't know."
Djokovic lost his Monte Carlo Masters title on Saturday after being beaten by Roger Federer in the semifinal, where Djokovic played with heavy strapping on his right wrist and was unable to serve or return to his usual level.
The second-ranked Serb had complained earlier this week about the pain, but then said it felt better after taking a day off from playing and training between his matches on Tuesday and Thursday.
His arduous quarterfinal win against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez on Friday, needing more than two hours to beat the Spaniard, aggravated the pain.
