Djokovic took six months off after Wimbledon a year ago and returned at January's Australian Open, where he lost in the fourth round.

"It feels insane. I mean, I'm still in shock", Anisimova said.

"He just seems to be getting better and better, he's improving year on year and as we said earlier, he's won nine titles since coming back from that injury problem with the knee". Last month, Djokovic underwent another surgery on the same elbow, with hopes of returning to his best closer to the European claycourt and grasscourt seasons.
