“There are no major issues, no major diagnosis, no torn muscles, just a minor inflammation because of all the matches I had played, and that’s all.“


Nole is confident he will not be affected by a shoulder injury as he bids to capture a third grand slam of 2011 at the US Open. The world number one was forced to retire in the second set of the final of the Western and Southern Open against Andy Murray in Cincinnati last Sunday. That withdrawal was just the second defeat in 52 matches for the Serbian in 2011, during which he has collected the Australian Open and Wimbledon crowns. Following three days of complete rest, the 24-year-old tested out the shoulder with no adverse consequences, suggesting he remains the man to beat in the final slam of the year at Flushing Meadows.

“The shoulder is not bad, the shoulder is OK. I can serve, I can do forehands which is good. All I needed was a couple of days rest, that’s all I needed.There is no major issues, no major diagnosis, no torn muscle, just a minor inflammation because of all the matches I had played and that’s all.“

Novak Djokovic tells the Wall Street Journal that to recover, he’s been sitting in a hyperbaric chamber that is said to simulate high altitude and compress the muscles at rhythmic intervals. The machine, which is made by CVAC Systems and called the CVAC Pod, costs $75,000. The company claims that spending up to 20 minutes in the pod three times a week can boost athletic performance by improving circulation, boosting red-blood cells, removing lactic acid and maybe aid in stem-cell production. “I think it really helps—not with muscle but more with recovery after an exhausting set,” Djokovic said. “It’s like a spaceship. It’s very interesting technology.”
