World number two Novak Djokovic has pulled out of this week's Miami Open because of an elbow injury.

The 29-year-old Serb is the second big name to withdraw from the event, after world number one Andy Murray did likewise for the same reason.



Defending champion Djokovic apologised to fans who had bought tickets to see him play in Miami.



He said: "My doctor has strongly advised against play because my elbow injury, that I keep carrying on for months, got worse in the past week."


Briton Murray will extend his lead at the top of the world rankings to more than 4,000 points as Djokovic will lose the points he earned from winning in Miami last year.
