World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has a chance to recover from the ankle injury sustained in Davis Cup action and take his place as the top seed at the upcoming Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.

A statement on his website disclosed that an MRI examination Tuesday morning showed no structural damage to the right ankle, which he twisted in a tie-clinching win over Sam Querrey on Sunday in Idaho.

The World No. 1 shared his optimism with fans in a Facebook post. “After seeing the results of all the tests we did, I am really positive and strong,” he wrote. “I’m doing the best I can with my team to recover fast and be ready for the upcoming tournaments. I am grateful to have so many of you worrying for me and sending me words of support. Thank you!”

Djokovic is a two-time runner-up at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters. He reached the final in 2009 and in 2012, both times losing to Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard will be looking to win a record ninth straight Monte-Carlo title when play gets underway Sunday.
