Novak Djokovic has further procedure on elbow injury after Australian loss


Djokovic is a 12-time Grand Slam champion

Novak Djokovic says he has had a “small medical intervention” on a persistent elbow injury and is “on the good road now to full recovery”.

The former world number one returned after six months out when he played at the Australian Open in January.

He lost to unseeded South Korean Chung Hyeon in the last 16 and had treatment on his right elbow during the match.

“It’s quite a journey this one, I have to say. I’m learning a lot and for that I’m grateful,” said Djokovic, 30.
