World no.2 Novak Djokovic is looking forward to starting his 2014 campaign early. The Serbian six-time Grand Slam winner takes part in this week´s Mubadala World Tennis Championship at the Tennis Complex in Zayed Sports City, Abu Dhabi, an invitation only exhibition tournament featuring six of the world´s top-ten ATP tennis players, including Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray.

Djokovic is 5/4 favorite to win the Mubadala WTC, and is already a strong favorite to lift three of the four tennis Grand Slam events in 2014. Only in the French Open - the personal fiefdom of Rafael Nadal who has won the event in eight of the past nine seasons - is Djokovic relegated to being second favorite.

Djokovic is 2/1 to win a fifth Australian Open (Bet Victor), 9/5 to win his first French Open (Winner), 2/1 to win his second Wimbledon (Bet Victor), and 2/1 to win his second US Open (Bet Victor).

To repeat the Herculean feat of winning three Grand Slams in a season that he achieved in 2011, Djokovic is best priced at 9/1 (You Win). To win two slams he is 5/2 (Paddy Power). To repeat 2012-13´s tally and win just one Slam, he is 6/4 (Sky Bet), and to go all season without winning a major for the first time since 2010, Djokovic is 5/1 (Sporting Bet).

As the second seed in Abu Dhabi behind Nadal, Djokovic received a bye to the semifinals which take place on December 27, where he will take on the winner of the quarterfinal match between Andy Murray and Jo-Wilifried Tsonga. Djokovic was the form-player on the ATP tour post US Open, with four straight tournament victories. Including his wins in Serbia´s run to the Davis Cup final (they lost to the Czech Republic), Djokovic is currently on a 24 match winning streak, climaxing with his straights sets demolition of Nadal in the final of the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 in London in November.

Speaking about the Mubadala WTC, an event he has won the past two years, Djokovic said:

“The Mubadala World Tennis Championship holds a special place in my heart and I’m very much looking forward to getting out in front of what is always a supportive crowd. The line-up this year is the most formidable yet, so I have my work cut out, but looking towards the 2014 season.”

In the 2012 final, Djokovic overcame a tough challenge from Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, winning 6-7, 6-3, 6-4.

 “I want to be challenged and this competition continues to deliver the perfect platform for me ahead of the season’s first major in Australia”

Djokovic has won the Australian Open four times in the last six years, and is the current defending champion.
