Novak Djokovic in injury scare at Hopman Cup

Perth: Novak Djokovic suffered an injury scare at the Hopman Cup on Monday when the world No.1 hurt his leg as fans pushed towards him while he signed autographs.

Djokovic had wrapped up a 6-3 6-4 victory over Italian Andreas Seppi when the incident happened. The Serb left his racquets and bag on the court and limped straight up the players tunnel to receive a medical assessment in the locker room.

Djokovic was unable to complete a television interview he had agreed to after his victory over Seppi. Djokovic only arrived here from Abu Dhabi late on Sunday and said he was troubled by jet lag.
