It appears that world No. 2 Novak Djokovic is prepared to return in time for the Rome Masters.
Djokovic, who was forced to pull out of the Mutua Madrid Open with a right wrist injury, feels he is healthy enough to take part in the event. He is defending quarter-final points at the event, and has not won the title since 2011 when he defeated Rafael Nadal for the title.
Kolar, stated that Djokovic, who was suffering from an inflamed tendon, should be prepared to return in Rome.
“The treatment took place last week but we agreed he would resume training gradually, slowly, to avoid a recurrence,” he said.”Madrid was too early, he would have to start playing on clay which is far more demanding than other surfaces, you play more returns and more spins, straining your wrist, so we decided he would come back in Rome
The Internazionali BNL d’Italia begins on Sunday, May 11. Djokovic will recieve a bye into the second round, where he will meet the winner between Pablo Andujar and Radek Stepanek.
