In his bid to return to No. 1, Novak Djokovic has announced his 2017 playing schedule for the first three months.
Djokovic will start the year in Doha, then play the Australian Open followed by Indian Wells and Miami. As of now, Djokovic does not have Davis Cup nor Dubai on his schedule.
Djokovic trails Murray in the rankings and will need the Scot to falter, especially in Australia. That’s because Djokovic is defending champion points at all four events he’s entered (Murray lost second round at Indian Wells and Miami).
Novak Djokovic 2017 Schedule (first 3 months)
Jan 2 Doha (250 points to defend)
Jan 16 Australian Open (2000)
Mar 9 Indian Wells (1000)
Mar 23 Miami (1000)
Including 90 points from 2016 Dubai, Djokovic has a total of 4,340 points to defend the first three months.
