Novak Djokovic is playing this week in Dubai, where he is the big favorite for victory after Roger Federer's withdrawal. The number 1 in the world will also play the doubles tournament together with Marin Cilic. At the 2020 ATP Cup, Djokovic helped Serbia win its first title by scoring six victories including wins over Medvedev in the semifinal and Nadal in the final.
At the 2020 Australian Open, he defeated long time rival Roger Federer in straight sets en route to the final where he defeated three-time grand slam runner-up Dominic Thiem in five sets. This is Djokovic's 8th win at the Australian Open, making him the first Open Era male player to win Grand Slam titles in three different decades.
During a recent interview, the 17-time Grand Slam champion revealed his post retirement plans: “Tennis is always going to be a very integral part of my life. Even when I stop playing professional tennis, I’m still going to be involved in tennis.
We have a tennis club, and there is soon going to be a tennis academy. I’m attracted a lot to the world of well-being, wellness, nutrition. So I’ll be involved in different things, in philanthropy as well with my wife.
We are very passionate about the early childhood development, so we put a lot of effort and time into that. And, of course, I want to try to be the best father I can possibly be. We cannot forget about that. That’s the number one thing, then it’s tennis and then everything else”.
