Less bright days are coming for the Serb Tennis star. Novak Djokovic`s latest results are rather meaningful. In the past few months, the 29-years-old player suffered serious shocks. He was upset in the early stages at Wimbledon and at the Olympics in Rio he lost in the opening match against Juan Martin del Potro. Furthermore, he and his fellow countryman Nenad Zimonjic lost the doubles rubber. Djokovic`s departure from Rio happens earlier than expected. He did win the title in Toronto, but back there he had poor opposition given the fact that Federer, Nadal, and Murray were not in the main draw.

Djokovic seems to have some medical issues

According to ESPN, the Serb chose to withdraw from Cincinnati in order to give his body a bit of rest. Moreover, he put the blame on a left wrist injury in order to justify his latest results. Whether it's a serious injury or just fatigue, the Serb`s schedule was indeed hellish in 2016. In the end, it comes to the amount of time spent on the tennis court rather than the number of tournaments played.

And Djokovic, in most of the tournaments played the maximum number.

Now, a wrist injury is something a tennis player must expect to happen. The amount of stress a player`s wrist endures is huge. Many have praised Djokovic`s fitness and stamina, but now it seems that his body is starting to give some warning signals.

Cincinnati still out of Djokovic`s reach

With 30 successes in Masters Series events, Novak Djokovic is leading the herd in this regard, but Cincinnati will slip away for at least a year.

At the Western and Southern Open, the Serb made it all the way to the final on 5 occasions (2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2015), each time losing the match. He lost twice against Andy Murray and on the other 3 finals it was Roger Federer who took his hopes away.

By not competing in Cincinnati, Novak will have plenty of time to reset himself. In less than a month, the last Grand Slam of the year will take place in its annual home of New York, giving the Serb another opportunity on a big stage.
