Novak Djokovic expects to be able to return at Madrid from the wrist injury that affected him at Monte Carlo. The world No. 2 had previously said he would take "some time" to recover from the problem.

Medical analysis showed that it is "not that serious," said a release from the ATP, with Djokovic to rest the wrist for several days before playing again.

"Fortunately, the situation with the injury is better than it first seemed," Djokovic was quoted as saying. ''Doctors assured me that I will be ready for Madrid, then Rome and Roland Garros, just as it has been planned. However, I need to continue with the recovery process and full medical treatments. It means I will have to take a short break in order to recover as soon as possible."
