Djokovic said he had watched Murray's latest documentary on his struggles and was inspired by it.
"It was tough to watch as a tennis player and as someone who knows him for a long time. To see what he has been through. It was a great insight into his last couple of years. The struggles he had - mental, emotional and physical. Just amazing warrior that he is in life really, to be able not to give up after everything that has happened and all the recovery and preparations and trying to heal and play a couple of matches in the whole season and still after everything he's been through in his career and having family at home, not give up on that and have support of the close ones, it's really impressive and inspiring," Djokovic told reporters ahead of ahead of his Mubadala World Tennis Championship match in Abu Dhabi on Friday.
Djokovic said he was slowly building his game and body for the next season.
"I am looking forward to new challenges in 2020."
