Djokovic quits doubles due to neck pain

Novak Djokovic was supposed to play the doubles tournament with his compatriot Filip Krajinovic, but announced his withdrawal. In principle it continues in the singles box.


This Sunday the alarms went off at the Cincinnati Masters 1,000, which takes place in the New York bubble, when Novak Djokovic informed those responsible for the tournament that he could not play the doubles match that he had scheduled with his compatriot Filip Krajinovic as a couple against Americans Paul and Tiafoe. The reason, pain in the neck that, in principle, will not prevent him from continuing in the singles table in which he already knows who will be his first rival in the second round: the Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis (30 years and 72nd in the world). Nikola Cagic and Dusan Lajovic, also Serbs, will take the place of Djokovic and Krajinovic.

The announcement of number one immediately sparked speculation about his options to play the Western & Southern Open and even doubts about his future performance at the US Open with almost no continuity, since August 31st.

It may be that the best thing for the Balkan is to give up the event that he disputes this week to try to ensure his presence in the American Grand Slam, although there is still no news in this regard and we will have to pay attention to the news that arrives from the Big Apple in the next hours.
