Nole will take a well deserved rest and then start preparing for 2012 season in which he will face big challenges – a great number of points to defend and keeping the position no.1.
“Hey everybody! Season is officially over for me. Wanted to thank you ALL for such a great support and so many wonderful wishes. I wish I could have been in better form for the last tournament but as I said before – everything happens for a reason. I am more than happy with everything that me and my team have achieved this year, and I will treasure and value this experience forever. Now I will rest well and soon start with preparations for season 2012. Once again, thank you for being my fans and friends, having your support throughout the year was a very important “ingredient” of the “winning formula” ;). “
Novak will open new season at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, the exhibition event bringing the world’s top players to the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex at Zayed Sports City on December 29-31. Nole will play his first match on Thursday, December 29, at 15.00 CET, against Frenchman Gael Monfils.
