Novak Djokovic Injury Update: Tennis Star Should Be Fine For Monte Carlo Rolex Masters

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 04/10/13 10:57AM EDT

One of the world's best and most famous tennis players, Novak Djokovic, found himself at the center of injury updates on Sunday when he hurt his ankle in a Davis Cup win over Sam Querrey. The tennis star quickly had an MRI done just to check how serious the injury was.

Novak Djokovic's official website updated his status with the following message:

The world's top player has undergone an MRI examination this morning which revealed no structural damage to the joint capsule and ligaments. A joint structures strain requires therapy and strict rest in the following days.

Depending on the recovery, a decision will be made on Nole's participation at the upcoming tournament in Monte Carlo.

It is great news to hear that Novak Djokovic's injury is not as serious as it could have been. It sounds like he will be back to 100 percent after just a few days of rest.

Djokovic is the type of tennis star that the sport so desperately needs. Some people hate him and others adore him, but everyone loves watching him play. Whether you root for him to lose or cheer for him to win, everyone can likely agree that tennis is much more entertaining when he is playing.

Knowing just how much Novak Djokovic loves playing tennis, there is a reason to be slightly concerned about when he decides to return. Even though it is not a serious injury right now, it could become serious if he tries to rush back to the court. Hopefully he has surrounded himself with a great team of doctors that will not allow him to practice or play until the strain fully recovers.

It would be an absolute shame if Djokovic rushed back and ended up hurting himself even worse than his initial injury. Hopefully he will be back to full strength and competing for championships in no time.
