Djokovic is likely to return for the Davis Cup team tournament that takes place immediately after the US Open.

His Serbian team will meet Spain, South Korea and Canada in Group B in Valencia.

Novak Djokovic confirmed he did not attend the final Grand Slam of the year just before the branching draw, as he did not qualify for the United States.

“Sadly, I can’t go to New York this time for the U.S. Open,” Djokovic wrote on social media on Aug. 25.

“I will stay in good shape and in a positive spirit to wait for another opportunity. Good luck to the players in this tournament.”

Djokovic’s announcement came hours before the U.S. Open split draw.
