Despite two losses yesterday, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic leaves Doha in good spirits. Playing in Doha for a first time, Djokovic fell yesterday to Ivo Karlovic in the singles quarterfinals and then later lost to Rafael Nadal in the doubles.
“Well, I had plenty of matches, singles and doubles, I think six in total, so I think it’s good,” Djokovic said. “Obviously I wish I could go further at least in singles, but it’s the way it is. But it was a good week. I want to thank the organizers of the tournament and everybody for welcoming me and my team, my family. It was really enjoyable experience.”
Djokovic also hinted that the fever that forced him to withdraw from Abu Dhabi is still hanging around.
“Well, still going through my system, but it will be fine for Melbourne,” he said. “Obviously I have more than enough time.”
Djokovic will be the top seed when the Australian Open begins in nine days.
