Novak Djokovic is hoping his ATP World Tour Finals triumph will serve as a platform for a successful 2014 season.

The Serb powered to a 6-3 6-4 victory over Rafael Nadal in Monday’s final as he defended his title in London and extended his winning streak to 22 matches.

And the 26-year-old, who won the Australian Open title back in January, has warned his rivals that he is ready to step up his game next year.

“Next to the run that I had in 2011, this is definitely the second best I’ve had,” said Djokovic.

“The most positive thing that I can take from these two-and-a-half months is the fact that I managed to regroup after a few big losses, especially Roland Garros, the US Open final and and Wimbledon final.

“As I said, work harder and play better, become an even more skilful player. I think I’ve worked on a few things in my game and serve that has helped me win a lot of matches in last two months.

“This is definitely the best possible way that I can finish the season, of course, the official ATP season, not including the Davis Cup final that I have in a few days’ time, where of course I hope we can bring another title to our country.

“This can serve as a great platform for 2014 season. I’m extra motivated and inspired to work and get myself, first of all, rested and recovered in the off-season, and then work on my game and get ready for Australian Open.”
