Novak Djokovic has returned to the practice courts, a day after pulling out of an exhibition match with a wrist injury.

"Good practice today with @MilosRaonic @Wimbledon," Djokovic wrote on Twitter.

Djokovic withdrew from a scheduled exhibition this week at Stoke Park, which was described by organizers as "a precautionary measure in preparation for Wimbledon next week."

The Serb's decision not to play even an exhibition event, especially since he has not played any other grass court tournaments in the lead up to Wimbledon, created questions about his fitness for The Championships, where he will be the top seed.

Djokvic experienced the wrist injury before Monte Carlo two months ago, withdrawing from Madrid to rest the problem. He then won Rome and reached the final of the French Open upon his return.
