After withdrawing from the exhibition in Abu Dhabi and the Doha ATP tournament due to pain in the elbow, Novak Djokovic will travel to Australia, where he will take part in two exhibition tournaments.
After that, he will make a definite decision about participation on first Grand Slam of the season, Australian Open (January 15 - January 28, 2018), where Novak was a champion six times.
The Serbian tennis player will be part of the exhibition in Kooyong (January 10 - 12), a suburb of Melbourne.
This year's "Kooyong Classic" will have Novak Djokovic and David Goffin, Dominic Thiem, Marin Cilic, Pablo Carreno Busta and many others.
The victory in the first two matches is a direct qualification for the finals, and the defeat doesn't mean the end of the competition, considering that there are matches for placement.
Nole will participate in the tournament "Tie Break tens" on Wednesday, January 10th, which will be held on "Margaret Court" in the tennis complex of Australian Open.
Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, Nick Kyrgios and Lleyton Hewitt will also participate in this tournament, which was presented as "every point counts", and where matches will be played as tie brakes.
