After tasting double failure at the Rio Olympics, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has decided to skip the next week’s Cincinnati Masters, according to a tweet by journalist Alex Krstanovic.

Djokovic, who lost to Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro in the first round of the singles event before joining forces with fellow Serb Nenad Zimonjic to go down in the doubles discipline, is slated to return straight away at the US Open that begins from August 25 at Flushing Meadows.

Following the season-concluding Grand Slam, the 29-year-old is scheduled to partake at the China Open, Shanghai Masters, and Paris Masters before featuring in the year-ending World Tour Finals in London.

With a supreme win-loss record of 51-5, Djokovic has won seven titles so far this season, which includes major triumphs at the Australian Open and French Open 2016.
