In his ninth tournament back after right elbow surgery, Novak Djokovic’s newest injury concern involves his left thigh. After starting his second round match brilliantly against Horacio Zaballos, the 12-time Grand Slam champion finished it slightly gingerly, two games after taking a medical time-out.

The issue was the only caveat on an emphatic 6-1, 6-2, 6-3 defeat of the No.126-ranked Argentine, in which Djokovic hit just four unforced errors in one hour, 31 minutes. He was treated at courtside by a trainer at the 4-3 sit-down, the issue seemingly arising at the end of his previous service game.
