Novak Djokovic insists he is playing pain free for the first time in "years" as he pursues his comeback at the Miami Masters.A return to action at the Australian Open with a modified serving action resulted in a fourth round defeat while a limp exit at Indian Wells last week only heightened doubts that the 30-year-old would ever add to his total of 12 Grand Slams.Djokovic's physical problems have clearly affected his once seemingly impenetrable mental strength.He swatted away a question about how he could challenge current world No. 1 Roger Federer, the Miami Open reigning champion, preferring to concentrate on the lessons learned during the most arduous of comebacks.Djokovic, who will play in the second round Friday, underwent a "small medical intervention" following his defeat in Melbourne and has been seen in the buildup here simulating a baseball pitch to ensure his right elbow stands up to the test.
