- HEAD TO HEAD AGAINST NADAL, FEDERER AND MURRAY:
Djokovic has a healthy H2H against every member of the Big 4 which includes himself. His H2H with Federer reads 22-22 and given his current form, he might overtake Federer to become the potential GOAT of Tennis. Nadal and Djokovic have established themselves as the biggest rivals with a H2H of 23-23. Djokovic leads Murray with a H2H of 21-9 which further explains that he is reigning supreme amongst the 3.

This lad was unstoppable throughout the season having a Win-Loss record of 82-6 and one can expect the same run to continue in the current season too.
- INJURY- NOT MUCH OF A CONCERN:
Djokovic has had very few injury vows in recent times as he has never pulled out of any match in 2015, although he suffered an arm injury during the Monte-Carlo masters and decided to pull out of Madrid event to give himself sufficient rest. One can say he is one of fittest bloke on tour and all thanks to his stringent diet which includes his famous No-Gluten diet.
- BORIS BECKER & NOVAK DJOKOVIC – THE INCREDIBLES:
Their partnership is an absolute fairytale. After Boris Becker joined Djokovic’s team as the head coach in 2013, Nole went on to win 5 majors and reached 9 Grandslam finals. The inputs from Becker to Djokovic have shown tremendous change in his play. With this kind of coaching and mentorship, He will go on to win the one trophy that has been missing in his kitty – The French open and much more.
