New York — Novak Djokovic admitted Friday that he has undergone electric shock-style treatment to heal a worrying wrist injury, but he’s still not 100 percent fit as he prepares to defend his US Open title.

The world number one has been suffering from a left wrist problem which contributed to a shock first round loss at the Olympics to Juan Martin del Potro and forced him to skip the Cincinnati Masters.

“I am not 100 percent but I am getting there. There’s still a couple of days. Hopefully on Monday, when it all starts, I will be there,’’ said the top seed and defending champion.

The 29-year-old holder of 12 majors admitted that he had submitted himself to various treatments as he battled to get fit for New York.
