Novak Djokovic, also known as Djoker, is a 27 year old serbian tennis player who has already won seven Grand Slam titles and is expected to continue. Novak Djokovic dominates the tennis scene all the while Roger Federer isn’t getting any younger. Novak Djokovic is born in Belgrad, Serbia and started playing tennis when he was just four years old. Already as a child he was talented and his early start made it so that he was a fully fledged professional at the age of 16. His entire family was practicing sports at the time and his younger brothers, Dorde and Marko, still play tennis. However, there is no doubt that Novak is the big star of the family.
Djokovic won his first Grand Slam in 2008. This was in Melbourne during the Australian Open. This is also the tennis tournament he was won the most. He won in 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015. No other player has ever won this tournament this many times since it was opened to professionals. Novak Djokovic is a smart player with multiple strenghts.
He plays a lot from the baseline and often uses his two-handed backhand. Djokovic has arguably the best backhand on the tour. His ability to return service hasa given him an excellent weapon against strong servers. He varies his rebounds often as to switch between offensive and defensive play. He also has a legendary trainer, namely Boris Becker. The collaboration began in 2013 and it has worked out very well for both parties.
Djokovic is aiming fully at winning French Open, he was happy to talk about how much he wants to win a true Grand Slam. In 2015 he has had a strong opening and this year Novak Djokovic has all the opportunities ahead of him.
Can Djokovic Reign Supreme in Monte-Carlo?Novak Djokovic is a man on a mission at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters in Monaco this week. The defending champion has reached the Final of his last eleven Masters 1000 events, winning nine of them including two already in 2016. Will Djokovic be able to successfully defend his title in Monte-Carlo? Djokovic is the world number 1, top seed and defending champion. He also has an unbeaten run in Masters 1000 events that stretches back to the Final of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati last August. He lost to Roger Federer in the Final there but has been a dominant force since then. This season, he has won four of the five tournaments he has played. Injury forced him to withdraw from the one he didn’t win. Having taken a bit of time off in February, he returned to the tour and won the title in Indian Wells in March. He overcame a scare against American Bjorn Fratangelo in the second round to storm through the rest of the tournament without dropping a set. He then moved on to Miami, where he continued his dominance by lifting the trophy without losing a single set. Coming into this tournament, he has won his last eleven matches all in straight sets. The route to another Monte-Carlo Masters 1000 title isn’t going to be easy for the Serbian, although he is a massive betting favourite to lift the trophy once again. On Wednesday, 13th April, he will enter the tournament in the second round to take on 22-year-old Czech world number 55 Jiri Vesely. This will be their... read more

Can anyone stop Novak Djokovic in 2016?One man stood head and shoulders above the rest of the ATP in 2015, completely dominating the tour and breaking several records along the way. That man was Serbian world number 1 Novak Djokovic, with what was statistically the best season of his career and one of the best seasons in tennis history. Starting 2015 in Qatar, Djokovic didn’t have everything all his own way and was knocked out at the Quarter Final stage by Ivo Karlovic. That seemed to fire him up and he proceeded to reach the final of all 15 tournaments he played for the rest of the season. These included all four Grand Slam events, to make Djokovic only the third man in history to achieve this feat. His eleven titles for the season included a record breaking six Masters 1000 events, three Grand Slams and the end of season ATP Tour Finals. On top of all the trophies, he also amassed a record amount of prize money in a calendar year ($21,646,145) and won 31 matches against top ten players. The only other defeats he suffered after the one to Karlovic were against Federer (3 times), Murray and Wawrinka. The man wasn’t quite unbeatable but was as near to it as anyone is going to get in the near future. The question coming into 2016 is, can anyone stop him from having an even better season? The Serb will again start his campaign in Qatar at the start of January, where he will hope to have a better tournament than last year, before starting the defence of his Australian Open crown from the 18th.... read more
