World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has been one of the most brutal players on the tour. Over the years, he’s built a reputation of dismantling his opponents like none other. The manner in which the Serb covers the tennis courts makes it seem like there are two players on his side of the court.

The results obtained, and the success enjoyed by Novak Djokovic has been tremendous in the past decade. He happens to be the only player in the modern era to win the four Grand Slams in a row (Wimbledon 2015, US Open 2015, Australian Open 2106, and French Open 2016).

Just as the world entered a new year, the 17-time Grand Slam champion headed to Marbella in Spain. The Serb has been training in the warm climate rather than the snow-capped areas in Serbia.

Since a much-needed break was in order after a rather volatile season, Djokovic decided to travel to the beachfront location to relax. The World No. 1 has even purchased a property in the region.

After a disappointing season last year, the Serbian ace will surely look to bounce back in the upcoming season. He will also want to forget some of the episodes he was involved in the previous season, such as him being disqualified for accidentally hitting a lineswoman with the ball at the US Open.

Novak Djokovic is a favorite at the Australian Open 2021

It’s not going to be long before the 8-time Australian Open champion leaves for Australia. Prior to the Australian Open 2021, the Serb is going to be headlining the event in Adelaide. He is also going to lead Serbia at the ATP Cup, who are the defending champions. 

As the Serb has enjoyed one of the most successful spells of his career in Melbourne, he’ll certainly be considered the favorite to go the distance at the Australian Open 2021.
