Former world number one Novak Djokovic will miss the rest of the season to recover from injury, the Serbian confirmed on Wednesday. The 12-time Grand Slam winner sustained an elbow injury at this year's Wimbledon that will keep him out for the rest of the season.

Djokovic took to social media to announce this setback and his Twitter post read: "I took time to make a decision about my recovery. Sorry for keeping you in the dark these days."




Djokovic also issued a statement on his official website where he said that he has been advised rest by every specialist that he visited since picking up that injury in July.

"All the doctors I’ve consulted, and all the specialists I have visited, in Serbia and all over the world, have agreed that this injury requires rest. A prolonged break from the sport is inevitable. I’ll do whatever it takes to recover," Djokovic said.



"Five months may seem long from this point, but I’m sure they will pass quickly because there is so much I want to do. Another important moment is coming, we will become parents for a second time. My wife Jelena and I are expecting our second child, and we are preparing to welcome a new family member. These are things that fill me with greatest happiness and delight. I’m confident I will be ready for start of the new season," he added.

Djokovic also revealed that his elbow was hurting while serving and therefore he took the decision to stay away from the sport for a while.

"My elbow is hurt due to excessive playing, and it troubles me constantly when serving, and now when playing forehand as well. Unfortunately, such injuries are often encountered in a professional sport, and I am very proud of the fact that I have been free from serious injuries during all these years," said Djokovic.

The 30-year-old former retired with an elbow injury during his Wimbledon quarter-final against Tomas Berdych this month. It is a big blow for the Serb, who appeared in 51 straight grand slams since his debut at the 2005 Australian Open.
