TENNIS: Novak Djokovic shares his love of Dubai...and a slice of cake
World No 1 and four-time Dubai Duty Free Tennis Champion Novak Djokovic said his plan post-victory was simply to catch up on some much needed shuteye.
"I plan to sleep all 10+ hrs in the plane. So tired but happy :) Good bye Dubai!" Djokovic tweeted on Sunday. "It was a gr8 week for me!I always feel good in Dubai. Thank you all for your support! #Nolefam" he added.
The Serb player also shared a photo of the cake he found waiting for him in his room following his win.
"Look what surprise i found when i came back in hotel Burj Al Arab," Djokovic said on Twitter. "Anyone wants a piece? :)" he teased.
The tennis star was on his way to the airport to catch his flight to LA where he will play at the inaugural Los Angeles Tennis Challenge featuring Mardy Fish, Pete Sampras and Bob and Mike Bryan on March 4.
This will be Djokovic's first appearance at the tournament where three exhibition pro-set matches will take place.
Djokovic will take on Los Angeles resident Mardy Fish in singles followed by a doubles match pitting Djokovic and his childhood idol Sampras against Southern California natives Bob and Mike Bryan.
