Novak Djokovic is on his way to Melbourne to prepare for the Australian Open

The former world No.1, who was unable to take part in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship or the Qatar Open due to an on-going elbow complaint, will test his fitness in two exhibition events before making a decision about the first Grand Slam of the year.

The Serbian will make his eagerly-anticipated return after a six-month absence at the Kooyong Classic [January 10-12]. David Goffin, Dominic Thiem and Marin Cilic will join him at the warm-up event.

Djokovic is also scheduled to make an appearance at a Tie Break Tens tournament – which will be held next Wednesday evening at Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne Park.

Rafael Nadal is also on his way to Melbourne. The world No.1 is a major fitness concern for the Australian Open due to a knee problem, but he appears to be winning his battle. He will also be involved in Tie Break Tens – as will Nick Kyrgios, Stan Wawrinka and Lleyton Hewitt.
