In 2016, Novak Djokovic is having one of the best seasons of his professional career. The Serb`s overall results so far are quite impressive. With two-thirds of the season almost gone, Djokovic played 50 matches on the ATP Tour losing only 4 of them. Up to a point, his tremendous skills on the Tennis court, as well as his great fitness built up an invincibility myth around him. Even if he surprisingly lost at Wimbledon in the 3rd round rubber against Sam Querrey, Djokovic remains the main `bully` of the ATP circuit. In order to allow himself a timeout, Djokovic did not compete along with his compatriots in the Davis Cup.

Djokovic`s batteries are charged and ready to roll on  hardcourt.

Unlike Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, the last but not least of the so-called group The Big Four, will not skip the first major tournament of the summer hard court season in North America. He will be the top-seeded player at Roger`s Cup in Toronto. Last year, Djokovic went to the final where he lost a sets rubber against Andy Murray.

In 2016, the job seems easier as his main opponents in recent years are not going to be there. North American summer tour will take a short but significant recess as most players will focus their attention towards the Olympics. Novak Djokovic will be in Rio as well in his attempt to achieve something that only Rafael Nadal can brag about (speaking about players who are still active). In Rio, Federer will run for the same thing.

Both Djokovic and Federer won all the Grand Slam events throughout their careers, but Nadal did that plus a gold medal in men`s singles. In mid-August, Djokovic will return to the United States to play one more event in Cincinnati as a final preparation for the US Open.

The Serb will have an airy autumn.

If Djokovic does not experience some unexpected events, once the US Open is over, his schedule will include 2 more Masters 1000 in Shanghai and Paris and the ATP Finals in November.

His national team failed against Great Britain, so a possible Davis Cup commitment is simply off the table. In the matter of ranking, the Serb has a solid lead, so it`s likely that he is going to be the ATP world no. 1 at the end of the year.
