<p>With ten Australian Open victories under his belt and an 11th in his sights next month, the Serbian sensation is the king of Melbourne Park’s hard courts.</p>
<p>He begins his preparations for the ATP-WTA United Cup in Perth on Sunday, after yet another amazing season that yielded three more Grand Slam victories, bringing his total to 24.</p>
<p>Defeating Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas 6–3, 7–6 (7–4), and 7–6 (7–5) in the 2023 final was one of the victories.</p>
<p>With the exception of 2022, when he was deported for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccination, Djokovic has won four of the last five Australian Opens due to his dominance.</p>
<p>After arriving in Perth and participating in a late-night training session on Thursday, he expressed his hope that this would not be his last visit to Australia.</p>
<p>“I always felt like I played my best tennis coming back to Australia, and I had great support throughout the years.” As a result, I’m not sure and don’t really have a strategy for the next year.</p>
<p>“I’m kind of seeing how far it takes me, season by season.”</p>
<p>Due to Djokovic’s absence from the Australian Open in 2022, Rafael Nadal, a longtime adversary, won his only other championship at Melbourne Park in 2009.</p>
<p>After a year out from competition due to hip surgery, Rafael Nadal, 37, is making his comeback this week at the Brisbane International, where the two greats will once again meet in Australia.</p>
<p>Having generally avoided injuries throughout the years, Djokovic said he believes the 22-time Grand Slam champion will remain as competitive as ever.</p>
<p>“He’s not the type of player who will return to the tour just to play, let’s say, on a medium level, play a few matches,” Djokovic said before to flying to Perth during an exhibition match in Saudi Arabia.</p>
<p>“He is who he is: a legend of our sport because he wants to win titles and be the best.”</p>
