Novak Djokovic Hurt His Shoulder at Wimbledon [UPDATE]

Stephen Douglas

Novak Djokovic hurt his shoulder during his third round match Wimbledon on Friday. Djokovic was up (6-5, 6-3, 3-2) against Gilles Simon when Djokovic went to the ground and jammed his shoulder. The match was delayed for seven and a half minutes while a trainer and doctor attended to the 2011 Wimbledon champ. He was then prescribed a small pain killer and continued the match. We will continue to monitor the situation. Promise.

UPDATE: Djokovic stuck it out and won the final set 6-4. He will now have two days off before his next match.
