“I think the higher you climb the rankings, the further you want to go. I have been No.2 for quite a long time. I have been playing pretty well. Of course, yeah, I want to become No.1, win 25 slams, or something like this,” he said this week.
“But again, for me the most important is hard work on myself, trying to improve my game, to be a better player, so try to win every tournament I play.
“If I manage to do big results, I can become No.1, especially of course with Novak losing his points here. I mean, we cannot not talk about this.
“But that's life. Sometimes somebody's injured, sometimes somebody lose. Well, he didn't manage to play here. That was a big story, but the result is this, and if I manage to become No.1, even with these circumstances, I think I should still have some credits,” he added with a chuckle.
