LOS ANGELES (Reuters) –Novak Djokovic is recovering from a “significant” elbow injury and is keen to get back on the tour again, his new physiotherapist Ulises Badio has said.
A prolonged dip in form before the injury earlier this year forced Djokovic to curtail his season.
The former number one added Argentine Badio and Italian fitness coach Marco Panichi to his team and is expected to return early next year.
“Novak had a significant injury and we are bringing it under control,” Badio said.
“Time was required to improve it. The decision he took allowed us to have a time table and not go back and forth about treatment,” Badio added.
Badio said he also looked forward to working with American Agassi.
“I read his book, which I found emotional. Now I’ve met him, and he seems a captivating person.”
