Belgrade - Novak Djokovic says playing against Spain in the Davis Cup quarter-finals could boost his form ahead of his return to competition.

Djokovic says "I haven't had too many matches recently, and that's what I need to get back in shape."

The Serb has dropped from his No 1 ranking after a slump in form following his French Open title last year.

Djokovic says he no longer feels pain in the elbow.
