Novak Djokovic pulls out of Abu Dhabi comeback
Abu Dhabi: Former world number one and 12- time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic withdrew from the Mubadala World Tennis Championship on Friday with elbow pain to raise fresh doubts over his fitness. The Serbian star had targeted Abu Dhabi for his first match since his quarter-finals loss at Wimbledon in July this year. Djokovic was scheduled to play Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut in the semi-finals of the exhibition tournament at 1900 local time. But four hours before that, Djokovic released a statement on his website announcing his intention. It is not clear still if he will play the Qatar Open where he is top seed next week.
