Djokovic the competitor is relentless, constantly seeking improvement. There is no false sense of security, that he can raise his game when needed against his closest rivals. The 29-year-old Serbian knows he's a target, thrives on it and works hard with his coaches, Boris Becker and Marian Vajda, in order to consistently perform at the highest level.

Since he began his third stint at the top of men's professional tennis on 7 July 2014, Djokovic has suffered only 13 losses, including seven against Top 10 foe - Roger Federer (4), Andy Murray (2) and Stan Wawrinka (1). Through his own superb conditioning; his ability to focus on every point and his wide arsenal of shots, he has forced other players to change their games.

Djokovic's self discipline, dedication, devotion and passion for the sport have seen him capture 19 titles from 24 finals (four Grand Slams and 10 ATP World Tour Masters 1000s) since 7 July 2014.
