Novak Djokovic reassesses year, grateful for injury healing quickly

Novak Djokovic reassessed how his year went. The Serbian player, speaking with Tennis TV, said: "I started off the season really well winning the Australian Open and obviously when you start the season that way you have a lot of confidence and motivation for what's coming up in the season.

I struggled to get the best form for the next couple of months and in Madrid, I started playing really quality tennis, that followed with the win in Wimbledon. I had a little injury prior to the US Open that healed pretty quickly luckily and I have won in Tokyo and Paris."

On how he prepares matches, Djokovic added: I try to do my homework with my team. Of course, I have both tennis coaches at this tournament with me. We watched the videos, tried to collect data and do the thorough analysis of his game, prepare ourselves well.

I think it's necessary to do that homework. I'm sure everyone does it. You know, it has worked. It has worked well. It's not a guarantee that it will work well, but at least you know the patterns of play of your opponent, which helps, especially if you have never faced him before."

Djokovic seems to be the main favorite in this year's London ATP Finals. The 32-year-old dropped just three games against the Italian Matteo Berrettini on Sunday and he will next face the Austrian Dominic Thiem who defeated Roger Federer in straight sets.
