Novakov program turnira za prva tri meseca 2015. godine

Novak will open new season in UAE on January 2, at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, the exhibition bringing the world’s top players to Abu Dhabi.

Last year, Nole beat Spaniard David Ferrer 7-5, 6-2 in the final, becoming the first player to win three crowns. The world no.1 maintained his unbeaten record at the event which he also won in 2011 (d. Ferrer) and 2012 (d. Almagro).

The Championship features strong line-up with Rafael Nadal, Stanislas Wawrinka, Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gael Monfils, contending for the title at the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex at Zayed Sports City (January 1-3).

Novak will then head to Doha where he will make his debut at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open, an ATP World Tour 250 tournament (January 4-10).

The first Grand Slam of the season – the Australian Open, begins on Monday, January 19, at Melbourne Park.

The four-time former titlist finished quarter-finalist to Stanislas Wawrinka in 2014, after a memorable five-set battle (6-2, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 7-9).

ATP 500 event, the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships starts on February 23. Nole’s 2014 campaign was ended in semi-finals when he fell to Roger Federer 6-3, 3-6, 2-6.

Novak will lead 2010 champion Serbia in a home Davis Cup by BNP Paribas first round tie against Croatia (March 6-8).

Djokovic will then go back on American hard courts looking to continue his dominance.

By winning the BNP Paribas Open (d. Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-6) and the Sony Open Tennis (d. Nadal 6-3, 6-3) in 2014, the Serbian star became just the second player to win the Indian Wells-Miami title double for a second time.

The event at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden will be played from March 12-22, while the Miami Open presented by Itaú takes place from March 25 to April 5.
