New York - Former world No 1 Novak Djokovic is in doubt for the US Open due to his elbow injury, Serbian media reported, citing the country's Davis Cup team doctor. 

Djokovic retired hurt during the quarter-finals at Wimbledon and said he was considering taking a break from playing to recover from the long-standing injury to his right elbow. 

Serbia's Sportski Zurnal reported that the 30-year-old could face up to 12 weeks on the sidelines.

"He has a bruised bone due to excessive playing," it quoted Zdenko Milinkovic as saying.
