Novak Djokovic is currently enjoying some quality time with his family in northeast Italy as the Serbian tennis star is set to spend a couple of days in the South Tyrol province, according to Italian newspaper Alto Adige.

After finishing his Australian Open campaign earlier than he expected, Djokovic went to Spain with his family. On Saturday, the Djokovic family landed in Bolzano, where "they should move between the Alpe di Siusi and Val Gardena" over the next couple of days. 

Djokovic, 36, is well familiar with winter holidays in the South Tyrol province, having been to the popular Italian ski resort in the past. However, this is the first time since 2020 February that Djokovic is holidaying in South Tyrol, via Alto Adige.

At this past Australian Open, Djokovic's run finished two days earlier than he expected after the Serb lost in the semifinal to Jannik Sinner. Throughout the entire match, Djokovic was looking far from his best as Sinner claimed a 6-1 6-2 6-7 (6) 6-3 win over the Serb.

After suffering his first-ever Australian Open semifinal defeat and his first loss at Melbourne Park since 2018, Djokovic acknowledged he wasn't happy at all with his performance but wanted to give himself time before putting a grade on his 2024 Australian Open run.

"Well, I'm kind of hot-headed right now. After the match it's very difficult to reflect on things in a more profound way," Djokovic said after his Australian Open exit.

"Maybe tomorrow, maybe in a few days' time, but I definitely have a lot to be very proud of, about, in terms of what I have achieved here.

"The streak was going to end one day. It was going to happen and at least I gave everything I possibly can under circumstances where I didn't play well, and I lost to, you know, a player that has a very good chance to win his first slam. That's all it is."

Djokovic currently isn't signed up for any events in February.
