ABU DHABI: Defending champion Novak Djokovic has already set his sights on the new season, which begins with the Mubadala World Tennis Championships at the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex, Zayed Sports City, from Dec.27-29, according to a release.

Djokovic said: “It’s great to end the year back at number one in the world and to get my first ATP World Tour Finals win in London but, after a few weeks’ rest; I’m looking forward to getting the new season off to a winning start again in Abu Dhabi.

“Winning the title here last year’s was the perfect preparation for my victory at the Australian Open in January.”

“Winning in Abu Dhabi last year was tough, though. I have some very good memories on and off the court from my debut last year.

Everything about the place will help me for the season ahead from the weather and facilities to the crowd. Abu Dhabi is a place that loves tennis.”
