Djokovic Withdraws From Cincinnati

Djokovic's to complete the Career Golden Slam put on hold for another year

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from next week’s Western & Southern Open due to a left wrist injury. It is the only ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament he has yet to win.

“I am very sad to announce that I won't be able to play this year in Cincinnati at the Western & Southern Open,” said Djokovic, a winner of a record 30 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles. “I have a recurring injury that has taken its toll on my body due to a very busy and active schedule this year. I have played many matches and I have to take some rest in order to heal. I always have my hopes high on returning to Cincinnati and winning the only trophy I am missing in the Masters [1000] series."

Djokovic, who has finished runner-up in Cincinnati on five occasions, is not expected to play until the US Open, the final Grand Slam championship of the year, beginning on 29 August. The 29-year-old Serbian has a 51-5 match record on the 2016 season, including seven titles.
