Slow court doesn't particularly help him, but you have to think that Dodig has a solid chance if Djokovic's shoulder really is falling off. Depends how bad the injury is...Nole thrashed Kubot with it last week, and almost did enough to beat Nishikori in straights. :shrug:
Fitness or finances? Finances always prevails over common sense. Dodig may well be the worst possible opponent to face with injury issues. The shoulder is already creaking off its hinges, grinding with the human bollocks isn't going to help.
If he decides to play, his shoulder must be alright for a few matches. The few days rest between his last match and now may have been enough. In that case Djokovic wins in 2. If he doesn't decide to play, Tennis wins.
Put those pitchforks down Nole fans, I kid. I meant Dodig wins. Which equates to a victory for tennis.
