Djokovic rolled his ankle during last month's Davis Cup tie against the USA but was determined that it wouldn't stop him competing at the Monte Carlo Masters. He went on to win that title for the first time but has since been doing a lot of rehab on that ankle in order to be ready for Madrid. 

“It's better every day,” Djokovic said. “I've been doing a lot of work from the end of Monte-Carlo tournament till now in order to obviously get ready for Madrid. It's a very big tournament that I like to play. Hopefully on Tuesday or Wednesday, whenever I play, it's going to be perfectly fine.”

In his pre-tournament press conference, Djokovic was asked about the gulf between the Big Four and the rest of the tour with Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray having shared all three of the Masters titles so far this year.

“There is definitely a gap. The four players are the ones who are winning all the Grand Slams and major tournaments,” he said. “Men's tennis is in a very high level; competition is getting stronger. But we cannot count out all the other players outside of the [Big] Four. Players like Ferrer, Berdych and Tsonga. These kind of players have shown in the past that they're able to win against the [Big] Four. “That's why men's tennis is now very interesting. I guess the experience that we have playing on a top level and winning that many major titles helps us get that necessary confidence and also I guess emotional stability in some crucial moments during the match.”
