Novak Djokovic is targeting his return to tennis at the Mutua Madrid Open (4-11 May) as he continues to battle for the No. 1 position in the Emirates ATP Rankings.

In Monte-Carlo last week, the Serb revealed that he sustained a right wrist injury, contributing to his semi-final exit (l. to Federer).

“Fortunately, the situation... is better than it first seemed," said Djokovic on his website. “Doctors assured me that I will be ready for Madrid, then Rome and Roland Garros, just as it has been planned. However, I need to continue with the recovery process and full medical treatments. It means I will have to take a short break in order to recover as soon as possible.”

The 2011 Madrid champion (d. Nadal) bowed out early last year, losing to Grigor Dimitrov in the second round. This season, the 26 year old has compiled a 19-3* FedEx ATP Win/Loss record, picking up titles in Indian Wells (d. Federer) and Miami (d. Nadal).

*Corrected figure. Djokovic's 2014 match record was incorrectly reported in an earlier version of this story.
