Djokovic Confident for Open Success

Posted 11-29-2011 at 11:39 AM by Philip Oliver
After a disappointing end to the season, Novak Djokovic believes that he can rediscover his winning form, next month, and challenge for a career third Australian Open title, at Melbourne Park.

The most recent tennis season was, arguably, the best of Djokovic's career. The Serb claimed three of the four Grand Slams, missing only the Roland Garros, on his way to the season-ending ATP Finals.

He lost just six matches in 2011, winning an impressive 70. However, two of those losses came within a few days of each other, at the ATP Finals in London, an event which was at risk of becoming a farce, before Roger Federer lifted the trophy, on Sunday. Those following the Grand Slam tennis odds will know all about this.

Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray struggled with both physical and psychological problems on the court, issues that led the Serb and the Spaniard to rare defeats, and led Murray back to the first aid box.

The poor condition of three of tennis' superheroes will no doubt have fans questioning whether the ATP Tour is forcing its athletes to play too many matches and tournaments. Djokovic, in particular, was only able to play eight matches between the end of September and the middle of November, due to injuries.

"My body says that it's overload", the Serb explained. However, Djokovic was seemingly unconcerned with his recent, negative results: "I had an unbelievable year. Nothing can ruin that", he said.

The youngster is planning to take a hiatus from the sport until January, when he will begin his preparations for the Australian Open, possibly by following Murray into the Brisbane International event. "I have more than enough time to get my old strength back", Djokovic remarked. "I'm confident I can do well in Australia."
