Serbians sustain injuries at Hopman Cup, Oz Open prospects in question


The Synchronized Serbs: These images of two of tennis' favorite Serbs, Novak Djokovic & Jelena Jankovic, must be worrying to their fans. In only the first tournament of the year, both ballers sustained injuries at the Hopman Cup - Nole was nursing a shoulder issue and fatigue (already?) while Jelena was dealing with a possible career threatening hamstring injury.


Both World No. 3's gave great effort throughout the tournament but fell in the final hurdle to the US team in the mixed-doubles match 7-6 (5), 6-2. What could this mean for their prospects at the Australian Open, beginning on January 14? Though Nole's injury seems minor, Jelena's injury is more worrying. For a player whose movement is one of her biggest weapons, she could be looking at a short stay this fortnight.
