The 33 year old father of four, also took to Facebook to announce the news of his withdrawal.


Novak Djokovic is now the first man to win three consecutive season ending titles since Ivan Lendl between 1985 – 1987. This title is his 4th in the season finale, with the first dating back to 2008 where he defeated Nikolay Davydenko, 6-1 7-5 at the Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai. This victory also extends the world number one’s unbeaten indoor record to 32 which stretches back to 2012.

The 27 year old also finished the year with a grand slam to his name, four ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles and an ATP World Tour Masters 500 title. In the process, the Serbian boasts a 61-8 match record for the whole of 2014.
