Novak Djokovic is yet to confirm if he will compete in the Asian swing, but says he is “actively working on his recovery” in order to be ready.
The world No 1 was troubled by a shoulder injury throughout the US Open and he eventually retired during the last 16 clash against Stan Wawrinka.
Djokovic initially pencilled in the Japan Open, which starts on September 30, as the start of his Asian swing, but there are now question marks over it.
Although he says he will be back when he is “ready”, he is hopeful that he will compete in Asia.
“Sorry for keeping you guys in the dark these days. I‘m having a wonderful time with my family and actively working on my recovery so I can be ready for the Asian swing. My health is always top priority and as soon as I’m ready, I’ll be back,” he wrote on Twitter.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress and thank you for your wishes for fast recovery!
