Friends and family, I am terribly disappointed that I am forced to withdraw from the Mubadala World Tennis Championship. Unfortunately, in the past few days I started to feel pain in the elbow and after several tests, my medical team has advised me not to risk anything, to withdraw from the tournament and to immediately continue with the therapies.
I am very sad because I was eager to return to playing official matches. I enjoyed the practices and everything I did to get ready for the start of the season, including the tournament in Abu Dhabi, where I always enjoy playing. Now I need to accept this situation, and to wait for the results of the therapies, in order to start playing tennis again and getting back to full rhythm.

This might affect the start of the season and the tournament plan, but the decision will be made in the following days.

Dragi svi, Izuzetno sam razočaran što sam prinuđen da se povučem sa turnira u Abu Dabiju.

Nažalost, u poslednjih par dana ponovo mi se javio bol u laktu i nakon pregleda lekari su me savetovali da ništa ne rizikujem, da bi trebalo da propustim ovo takmičenje, i da odmah nastavim sa terapijama. Veoma sam tužan jer sam željno čekao da ponovo počnem da igram zvanične mečeve. Uživao sam u pripremama i radovao se turniru u Abu Dabiju, gde volim da učestvujem.

Ostaje da prihvatim ovu situaciju i sačekam rezultate terapija kako bih što pre mogao da se vratim na teren i uđem u pun ritam. Sve ovo može da utiče i na početak sezone i plan turnira koji sam napravio, ali odluka će biti doneta narednih dana.
