Novak Djokovic said Wednesday his confidence had been rocked by a string of poor results after a premature return from elbow surgery but the former world No. 1 vowed to work hard to get back to winning ways.Having exchanged a few shots with a young prospect after an intense training session in searing heat at his own tennis complex in central Belgrade, the 30-year old Serb conceded that the last 18 months have been testing.A string of below-par performances were followed by Djokovic having to retire against Czech Tomas Berdych in last year's Wimbledon quarterfinals with an elbow injury which kept him sidelined until January's Australian Open.Judging by the ferocity of his shots in training and the vehement exchange of instructions with his coaching staff, Djokovic, currently the world number 12, is determined to break back into the top echelon of the men's game.Mobbed by primary school children as he posed with them for photos after the claycourt practice session, Djokovic cut a relaxed and confident figure ahead of his upcoming tournaments.
