Seeking third successive Australian Open title in the modern era, Novak Djokovic arrived in Melbourne yesterday after playing in the Hopman Cup in Perth.
The Serbian, who thwarted the challenges of Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal in the past two title encounters in Melbourne, beat Spaniard Fernando Verdasco on Saturday night in his final singles match at the Hopman Cup.
While interacting with the press, Djokovic quoted, “My form is very close to where I want it to be. I feel I can work on a few more things and I have some adjustments to make it to the best possible level but I am where I aimed to be, where I want to be at this moment."
Djokovic had been busy in Hopman Cup last week, but he will use his next week for training before the Australian Open.
Djokovic is confident about his preparations, "Coming into Australia, it has taken its toll for those first few days but already over the last few days I have been striking the ball better and the last few matches were really good. I am happy with the way I am playing and I have another eight days of really good practice before the Australian Open."
