Defending Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic has said that all he needs is 'love' as he has been in unstoppable form since getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend Jelena Ristic.

The Serbian second seed could become the first man to win four straight titles at the opening Grand Slam of the season, which begins in Melbourne next week.

According to CNN, Djokovic said that since he got engaged in September last year, he has not lost a single match, and quipped that he believes that he should get married soon also.

However, Djokovic mentioned that he and Ristic are yet to set a date for their wedding in order for him to focus on beginning his on-court campaign in Australia.

Meanwhile, Djokovic is also exploring an on-court relationship with new coach Boris Becker, who is also a two-time Australian Open champion, saying that he and Becker are going to try to make a successful partnership.

Djokovic, who won his first Grand Slam in Australia in 2008, faces Slovakia's Lukas Lacko in the first round, the report added.
