Defending champion Novak Djokovic to skip Miami Open with elbow injury

Defending champion Novak Djokovic to skip Miami Open with elbow injury”

Novak Djokovic is reportedly in danger of missing the Miami Open as he continues to struggle with an elbow issue.

A two-time champion of the event in 2009 and 2013, Murray seized the No. 1 ranking late past year from Novak Djokovic, who reportedly could also miss the event because of an elbow issue.

Unfortunately for Murray, the injury bug is back to throw a wrench into the entire process.

However, he followed that up with another disappointing showing at the BNP Paribas Open with a limp second-round exit to Vasek Pospisil, the world No 129 from Canada. His hopes were dashed in the round-of-16 by an unseeded Mischa Zverev.

After all, plenty of this Liverpool group were part of the squad that went to the Etihad Stadium and thumped City 4-1 last season. Guardiola added that he's met with City owner Sheikh Mansour about the future of the club.

He relinquished his Wimbledon and US Open titles and was shocked in the first round of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics a year ago by Juan Martin del Potro, losing his world number one ranking to Murray along the way.

The 29-year-old had a favorable draw at Indian Wells, with Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal all drawn in the bottom half of the draw. 'Apologies to the fans, it's one of my favourite tournaments', the World No. 1 wrote.

"My doctor has strongly advised against play because my elbow injury, that I keep carrying on for months, got worse in the past week", Djokovic said on the tournament's website.

The 2017 Miami Open runs from March 20 until April 2 at the Crandon Park Tennis Center in Miami.
