Novak Djokovic will begin the defense of his Australian Open title from Jan. 18 with the ominous warning to flagging rivals that he is in the form of his life.If he does then Australia is in for a treat, even if it is bad news for his competitors.He beat a hapless Nadal 6-1, 6-2 with a level of tennis rarely seen, even by his 14-time Grand Slam opponent, who described Djokovic's game as "perfect" and "stratospheric". For Nadal, who flew to Australia Saturday night straight after his defeat, the Grand Slam cannot come quickly enough.He spent all week in Doha rebuilding his confidence after a poor 2015, only for it to be bruised once again by Djokovic.Despite that, he maintains he can do well in Melbourne, where he has won once, in 2009, beating Federer in the final.
