Novak Djokovic has pulled out of the Shanghai Master

BELGRADE, Top-ranked Novak Djokovic has pulled out of the Shanghai Masters because of a back muscle injury, delaying his return to competition. Djokovic says... he has not recovered from the injury he sustained in winning the U.S. Open. He aggravated the injury and had to stop the match while playing for Serbia in the Davis Cup semifinals last month Djokovic overcame the injury en route to capturing his first-ever U.S. Open title last month, but was forced to retire from a Davis Cup match against Argentine slugger Juan Martin del Potro three weeks ago, as his Serbian squad lost to visiting Argentina in a semifinal showdown in Belgrade. The 24-year-old Djokovic was also forced to pull out of this week's event in Beijing, where he was the two-time reigning champion. Djokovic ascended to No. 1 for the first time in his career this year, one in which he captured three quarters of the Grand Slam events.
