Djokovic unconcerned by shoulder injury ahead of Wimbledon final

Djokovic unconcerned by shoulder injury ahead of Wimbledon final

Novak Djokovic insists he is not worried by a shoulder injury that required treatment during his wonderful performance in reaching the Wimbledon final on Friday.

World number Djokovic was at his clinical best to dispatch of Richard Gasquet 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 6-4 and leave him one match away from defending the title he won 12 months ago. 

However, there were concerns during the second set when the Serbian called for a trainer during a changeover to work on his left shoulder.

It did not appear to hinder the 28-year-old too much, though, and he played down any fears of it hampering him in the final.

Speaking to BBC Sport, he said: "It's nothing that worries me. I'll be okay for the next match."

Djokovic now either faces a repeat of the 2014 final against Roger Federer or Andy Murray - who he lost to in the 2013 showpiece - in Sunday's final.

"I cannot foresee the future but I'll enjoy their match. There's a lot at stake but I'm ready for it."
