Tennis World No.1 Novak Djokovic is preparing himself for a tough season ahead in 2019 after making a brilliant comeback from injury in 2018. The Serb ended up winning two Grand Slam titles, Wimbledon and the US Open and ended the season as the No.1 ranked player in the world snatching the crown from Rafael Nadal.
The Serb is now prepping up for the upcoming season, which will soon begin in the Qatari capital of Doha at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open on December 31. Before the start of the tournament, the Serb decided to venture out in the deserts of the city along with a few of his peers. Djokovic decided to take things a step further as he decided to don a traditional Arabian one-piece attire better known as the ‘Jubba’.
Djokovic could be seen donning the traditional Qatari attire, which is made of soft cotton for comfort in the smoldering heat. While in the desert, the 14-time Grand Slam champion decided to indulge in some local activities like taking a camel out for a ride.
He also took some great affection for the animal, grazing its back, a video of which he posted on his Twitter account:

Djokovic in his journey in the deserts was also joined by a few of his peers including 3-time Grand Slam Champion Stan Wawrinka and young guns Dominic Thiem and Karen Khachanov who also wore the ‘Jubba’.
Novak Djokovic will open his title challenge at the Qatar Open against Marko Djokovic where he will be hoping to speed up his preparations for the first Grand Slam of the year, Australian Open which begins in Melbourne on 14th January.
