Nole rolls ankle - but what else could be bugging him?

Novak Djokovic managed to pass his first round test at the US Open but not without some battle scars.

Last year's finalist looked strong in dismissing Frenchie veteran Arnaud Clement 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 but rolled his ankle during the match. Nole told the press all will be fine with it saying,

Well, the [ankle is] okay. It's going to be good in two days, I'm sure. After that happened, I was thinking more of it than I was really actually feeling the pain, so it's not really a big deal. But in that certain moment, I felt big pain, so I just had to tape the ankle.

But it's going to be all right.

I guess we'll all see how the Serb recovers in his next match, but the ankle issue coupled with a rumored stomach problem aren't great signs for Nole.
