Novak Djokovic withdraws from exhibition, unsure of Australian Open status

As an individual athlete he is not obliged to share details with the world, and secrecy has been very much his modus operandi in this whole episode.

Former world number one Novak Djokovic has postponed his long-awaited comeback because of an elbow injury. But he has been left fighting for his reputation after it was revealed in December he returned an abnormal drug test result during the Vuelta victory.

Concerns were raised about his ability to recover from the hip injury in time for next month's Australian Open, which he had targeted for his comeback.

Thiem, meanwhile, is eagerly waiting to see how Djokovic, a 12-time Grand Slam winner, plays on return.

"I think it is great".

Williams' 23 Grand Slam singles titles are a record for the Open era, which began in 1968 - she broke a tie with Steffi Graf in Australia. The younger Williams who has 72-career titles has been top of the Women's rankings for 319 weeks and posted her fifth consecutive top-three finish last year having won at Wimbledon and Rome.

"I have goals and targets".

The 30-year-old Scot will now step in for Djokovic for the Abu Dhabi showcase after the Serb pulled out on the advice of his medical team.

He was scheduled on Friday to play Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain in the exhibition semifinals, his first match in nearly five months.

"I'm feeling good. I did a good pre-season and did some exhibition matches in Thailand and I am looking forward to the new season". I had a good off-season. The 17-year-old became the youngest player to debut in the Top 200 since Nadal in 2002 - currently ranked world No. 162, climbing over 400 spots despite missing several months due to injury. It will be their first encounter.

What appears to be happening is that Murray wants to play some sets, or do some serious practice, against some of the players there that are fully involved. "It was a big decision, a big call to make". The transfer proved beyond doubt that PSG now belong to the mega-clubs of the world.

Federer won the Australian Open and a record eighth Wimbledon while Nadal claimed a 10th French Open and the US Open in a Slam sweep for the two veteran stars.

"I am terribly disappointed that I am forced to withdraw from the Mubadala World Tennis Championship", Djokovic said in the statement.
