World no. 1 and 24-time Major champion Novak Djokovic is back on the practice court. Novak is training in Spain, preparing for the start of the new season ahead of trips to Dubai and Australia. Djokovic will train with Hamad Medjedovic in Dubai before kicking off the season at the United Cup, defending the colors of Serbia alongside Olga Danilovic.

Novak enjoyed a great run in 2023, winning seven ATP titles and writing history books at 36. Djokovic claimed three Major crowns in the season behind us, leaving Rafael Nadal far behind and ending the GOAT race. The Serb is hungry for more in 2024, focusing on four Majors and the Olympic gold medal, the only notable trophy he misses.

Novak missed two Major events in 2022, unable to fight for the title in Melbourne and New York. Eager to chase Nadal and move in front, Djokovic threw everything at Majors in 2023, playing in all four finals and lifting the trophy three times.

Novak fought with Carlos Alcaraz for the year-end no. 1 honor, breaking the youngster's resistance at the US Open and cementing his status as the season's best player in Paris and Turin.

Novak opened the season with two titles, conquering Adelaide and celebrating his tenth Australian Open crown over Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Serb slowed down a bit in the upcoming months, missing Indian Wells and Miami and not playing well on clay ahead of Rome.

Djokovic raised his level when it mattered the most, beating seven rivals in Paris and becoming the only player with 23 Major titles. Novak became the only player with three titles at all four Majors, standing as the top favorite at the upcoming Wimbledon.

Djokovic reached the final and met Carlos Alcaraz, seeking his eighth The All England Club trophy. The Spaniard prevailed in five sets, delivering the Serb's only loss at Majors in 2023. Djokovic and Alcaraz played again in an epic Cincinnati final, with Novak winning after almost four hours for his 39th Masters 1000 crown and a boost ahead of New York.

The Serb conquered his 24th Major at the US Open, moving into the driving seat in the year-end no. 1 battle. Novak reduced his schedule by the end of the year, playing one Davis Cup match in Valencia and taking a break until Paris and Turin.

Djokovic conquered both events, adding 2300 ATP points to his tally and finishing the season at the top for the eighth time.
