It is a no-brainer that Novak Djokovic is one of the best tennis players of all time due to his results, but it is even more amazing to see the success of Novak as he gets older.  It is a common assumption in men’s tennis that once a player hits thirty, they will slow down, as if hey almost hit a brick wall that is blocking them from success.  This is not the case for Novak as he is 31 years old, and his results have even been better later in his career.

The season for tennis has just finished and the off-season grind has just started.  This time of the year is key to all players, because this is where the amount of work put in can separate you from the pack.  While certain players are on vacations, the players still grinding and working hard will look much better when the season starts.  All the good players will take a short vacation, and then begin to train through the rest of the off season.  With the ending being how it was to the season certain players will have to have fast starts next year.

One of these players, Andy Murray, got injured toward the end of last season which kept him out for a while.  The recovery process will need to be long, and successful to get back to the number one spot in the world he wants.  In o...
