Novak Djokovic is already in tip-top form after destroying rival Rafael Nadal 61, 62 to win his first Doha title on Saturday. Djokovic has now made 16 straight finals and since the start of last year, he’s won 12 events.
With Djokovic’s increasing his ranking lead and dominating the tour, the Serb is seemingly unstoppable. But despite his near-perfect match against Rafa, he’s not invincible.
“No, I don’t feel invincible. Nobody is invincible,” Djokovic said. “But I’m playing the tennis of my life, and I will try to, you know, nurture and cherish those moments on the court.”
Djokovic now turns his focus on his Australian Open title defense starting next Monday.
“[The Doha title] does definitely give me a great deal of confidence for the rest of the season,” he said. “But, you know, my thoughts are only directed to Melbourne and what I need to do there. The week that I have before the Australian Open starts will actually be very useful also for me because I have played a lot, trained very hard, played a great five matches here.
“That’s where I’m hoping I can continue this run and this great level of performance,” he added.
After his 60th career ATP title, Djokovic is now 85-5 over the past 52 weeks and is 33-5 against the Top 10 during that span.
