Former World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who returned to tennis after a six-month hiatus due to an elbow injury at Australian Open, has suffered another setback after reports emerged that he has undergone a hand surgery earlier this week. According to a report by a Swiss newspaper Blick, the 12-time Grand Slam winning Serb travelled to Czech Republic to seek medical advice. The report adds that he further travelled to the Swiss city of Muttenz where he was seen wearing a bandaging over his right hand.

The report says that the 30-year old has undergone a surgery on his hand, which is not related to his elbow injury. It further said that he went to Rennabanklinik clinic for the procedure, a sports facility that specialises in the treatment of bones related deformities. He was reportedly accompanied by his coach Radek Stepanek during the visit.

Djokovic, who was scheduled to appear at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells from March 5, is now doubtful of returning to the tournament, the report adds.

The Serbian, who lost to South Korea’s Chung Hyeon in the fourth round of the Australian Open, was seen wearing a compression sleeve on his playing arm throughout the tournament. In spite of the injury, he was touted to be one of the favourites to win the competition, but his journey was cut short after he lost 7-6(4) 7-5 7-6(3) to Chung.
