HIS game might have suffered a dip in form recently, but Novak Djokovic is not worried over it.
Last year, the Serb arrived in Doha full of confidence and clinched his maiden Falcon Trophy after thrashing Rafael Nadal 6-1, 6-2 in the final.
He went on to win a sixth Australian Open and a maiden French Open crown, but then suffered a loss of form which finally saw him ceding the No.1 rank to Andy Murray after 122 weeks at the top.
“I don’t see the second six months of 2016 as a crisis or anything like that. It’s not in my mindset or my philosophy of life to observe things in this way,” said Djokovic, who opened his title defence with a 7-6 (7-1), 6-3 win against Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff.
“I don’t believe in limits. I always believe that you can learn a lot more from the matches you lost. Then you can sit down, dig deep, and figure out what’re the things that you can do better,” he added.
