Djokovic skips Asian Series to focus on year-end finals

Novak Djokovic (Serbia, World No. 1) will skip the Asia Series in the second half of the tour entirely.

Djokovic is still in career-high form at the age of 36, having reached the finals of all four majors this year, winning all but Wimbledon in England.

Djokovic became the first male player to win 24 Grand Slam titles on Sept. 10 at the U.S. Open in New York City.

“I’m doing everything I can to keep my body in the best shape and recover so I can continue to compete with the younger players,” the 36-year-old said in a post-final press conference.

Djokovic opted to forgo the ATP Masters 1000 Shanghai Masters, which he has won four times in his career, in favor of focusing on the ATP Finals and the men’s Davis Cup Finals in November.

Djokovic led Serbia to its first Davis Cup title in 2010 with two singles victories over France’s Gilles Simon and Gael Monfis in the final.메이저놀이터

Drawn in the same group as South Korea in this year’s Davis Cup main draw group stage, which concluded on Sunday, Serbia finished second in the group with Djokovic’s support from the second match onward.

Djokovic won his sixth career title at last year’s ATP Finals, defeating Casper Lourdes (Norway, world No. 9) to tie Roger Federer (Switzerland, retired) for the most titles, and can break the all-time record if he wins this year.
