Novak Djokovic aims Madrid return with eye on French Open

Novak Djokovic said his right wrist injury is "better than it first seemed" and he will try to return at next month's Madrid Masters.

The right-handed Djokovic said in a statement on Tuesday that he's been "assured" by doctors that he will be ready for clay-court tournaments in Madrid and Rome, followed by the French Open, which starts on May 25.

Djokovic has won six major singles championships and needs a French Open title to complete a career Grand Slam.

He wore a thick white bandage on the wrist while losing 7-5, 6-2 to Roger Federer on Saturday in the semifinals of the Monte Carlo Masters, where he was the defending champion. The wrist problem limited Djokovic's ability to serve and return.
