Novak Djokovic: Won his second Wimbledon title this summer

Novak Djokovic: Won his second Wimbledon title this summer

Newly-crowned Wimbledon champion Djokovic goes into the ATP World Tour Finals as the man to beat as he looks to end the year as world No 1.

A string of big victories have helped the Serbian back to the top of the rankings and is hot favourite to claim a hat-trick of season-ending titles in the capital.

Although he suffered a shock loss to eventual champion Stanislas Wawrinka at the Australian Open, 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 was crowned Wimbledon champion once more following a five set victory against Roger 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 immediately bounced back to win in Beijing before retaining his Paris Masters crown and now heads to the O2 looking to secure the year end world No 1 spot.
