Novak Djokovic: Is a four-time champion at the Australian Open

Novak Djokovic: Is a four-time champion at the Australian Open

The world No 1 will be hoping to rediscover his red-hot form at the Australian Open as he attempts to steal a march on his rivals in 2015.

Djokovic ended the year at the top of the world rankings as he took the ATP World Tour Finals title after the withdrawal of fellow finalist Roger Federer.

But the Serbian endured disappointment in Melbourne last January, suffering a shock quarter-final loss to eventual champion Stan Wawrinka.

This defeat ended a 25-match winning streak and Djokovic will be determined to produce another dominant run in the tournament after taking the title on four occasions.    

Following his Australian exit, he bounced back by winning the Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells and Miami – both of which are prestigious hard-court tournaments held in North America.

He also enjoyed a successful clay-court season, winning the Rome Masters and reaching the French Open final, where he missed out on completing the career Grand Slam after a loss to Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic's crowning moment arrived at the All England Club this summer when he became Wimbledon champion for the second time following a dramatic five-set victory against Federer.

The 27-year-old Belgrade native, whose main attributes are his backhand and amazing agility around the court, suffered a shock US Open semi-final defeat to Kei Nishikori.

He responded with a win in Beijing before retaining his Paris Masters crown and his run in London ensured Djokovic stayed in top spot.
