Novak Djokovic unlikely to be fit for US Open

Novak Djokovic’s chances of playing the US Open – the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year looked bleak as soon as he hit his forehand wide and into the tramlines in the quarterfinals of his Wimbledon clash. Not one to go away without a fight, Djokovic surrendered midway into the match and later said his elbow injury prevented him from completing the contest. Now the situation has been looked at and the diagnosis suggests a return for the Grand Slam in Flushing Meadows looks extremely unlikely.
