Sydney - World number one Novak Djokovic will reveal "never before told" stories about his life in a short documentary series in partnership with an Australian sponsor.

The 27-year-old will detail his journey from war-torn Serbia, including the dedication of his first coach Jelena Gencic, to his career-shaping Grand Slams wins at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

"The biggest fight I had in my life was actually the fight within," he said in a short trailer released Monday for the videos called "Made By", in association with Australian winery Jacob's Creek.

He added that the mini-documentary form "has given me the opportunity to tell the world my story for the first time, showing what I've been shaped and inspired by".

The video is due to be released in January, just days ahead of the Australian Open, the opening Grand Slam of the season where Djokovic is a four-time champion.

Andre Agassi previously featured in Jacob's Creek films.
