Novak Djokovic has announced his withdrawal from next week’s Miami Open in order to spend more time with his family.

The world number one had been expected to make his first appearance since claiming his ninth Australian Open title in February.

But Djokovic wrote on social media that he has decided to skip the event:

The tournament line-up had already been depleted by the respective withdrawals of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and world number four Dominic Thiem.

Earlier this month Djokovic equalled Federer’s record of 310 weeks at the top of the world rankings.
