Djokovic seems in the right state of mind, going through his champion-like motions.
The 17-time Grand Slam champion, off the back of two impressive ATP Cup wins over Alexander Zverev and Denis Shapovalov, hopes to find top gear once again on his cherished courts to close the gap on Roger Federer and Nadal’s 20 majors.
“I have been very transparent about the fact that one of the biggest goals is to try to reach the No. 1 of all-time weeks' record, and I'm getting closer and closer to that one,” continued the ever-ambitious top seed, knowing he will pass Federer’s 310 weeks atop of the rankings in March.
“As a professional tennis player, I need to have goals. Over the last 15 years, everything that I have managed to achieve, I don't settle for anything less but the top of the men's game and the biggest trophies. That's something I always aim for. I work towards that. I'm still lucky to be where I am. Let's see what the future holds.”
Novak clearly mean business Down Under.
With so much history and glory on the line, Djokovic is fairly pleased with his very contrasting Australian Open starters.
“You are expected to win most of the times as a top player and kind of ease your way through the first rounds, but, I don't see it that way. Still have to do your job on the court.”
Again, very businessman like.
