Finally Janko Tipsarevic seemed to be ready to come back to the tour, but he is still not there.
The former world no.8 has been sidelined for more than 1 year by a benign tumor to his foot. The Serbian had to delay his comeback several times, after the problem kept on coming back.
Janko was meant to play the Chennai Open (5th of January), but he won’t make it and he will be replaced in the main draw by world no.225 Elias Ymer.
Janko has won the tournament in 2013 after reaching the finals in 2012 and 2013.
Let’s hope to see Tipsarevic back at least for the Australian Open.
