The first major clay court event of the season starts on Sunday when the Monte-Carlo Masters starts.
It is a busy period of the season for the players as they begin their preparations for the French Open, which kicks off on May 26.
After shock defeats in Indian Wells and Miami last month, Djokovic will be hoping to get back to winning ways on the clay.
“I grew up on clay, so I like playing on clay,” Djokovic said.
“We’ll see. I definitely have to play better than I have these couple of tournaments.”
By the time Djokovic arrives at Roland Garros, he will be hoping to be in the kind of form which can lead him to win a second title in Paris.
Where will Novak Djokovic play?
Djokovic lives in Monte Carlo and has already made his way to the courts at the country club to begin practising.
His next event will be the Madrid Open, where he has won just twice (2011, 2016).
He will then compete at the Italian Open, where he has a far better record with four titles.
Could Djokovic play anywhere else?
Djokovic may decide to play at the Barcelona Open if he has an early exit in Monte-Carlo.
There are also ATP 250 events in Hungary, Germany, Portugal and Switzerland but Djokovic is unlikely to play at those tournaments.
What is Djokovic’s record on clay?
While Rafael Nadal is comfortably the best player on clay, there is a strong argument to say Djokovic is the second player on the surface.
He has a 199-52 win-loss record which means a 79 per cent win rate.
The Serbian is also the only player to have beaten Nadal in three different clay court Masters events.
