Djoko out

MIAMI (AFP) – World number two Novak Djokovic won’t defend his Miami Masters title next week, saying Sunday that he was withdrawing because of an elbow injury, the same ailment that has also sidelined top-ranked Andy Murray.

“Sadly, I won’t be able to defend my title in Miami this week,’’ Djokovic said in a Facebook posting.

Djokovic joins world number one Murray on the sidelines for the elite hard court tournament. Murray pulled out Saturday, also with an elbow injury.
