Djokovic is year-end top dog

The all-conquering Novak Djokovic will end 2011 as the best men’s tennis player on the planet after a stellar 12 months on the court (Djokovic 13/8f – Wimbledon 2012 Outright).

The 24-year-old Serb is the current holder of three Grand Slam titles – the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open – and was a semi-finalist at the one that got away, the French Open.

But away from the showpiece tournaments Djokovic has also underlined his dominance with just three defeats in 67 matches, two because of injury, which included 41 consecutive match wins at the start of the year.

Injury and the intensity of the tour seems to have caught up with him, however, but the fact Rafael Nadal was dumped out of the Shanghai Masters at the third-round stage on Thursday by Florian Meyer means he has already done enough to claim the year-end number one trophy, which is due to be presented to him in London at the ATP World Tour Finals next month.

Djokovic, who did not feature in China due to a back problem, can be backed at 6/4 to retain his crown in Australia in January, with Nadal 11/4 to taste glory.
