There is no question that Novak Djokovic is playing in his best tennis of his life. In a new feature from the ATP, Djokovic’s recent run is further explored.

After his 62, 60 win last night over American wildcard James Blake, Djokovic said everything in his game is going great but pointed to his improved serve as the key.

“I have been working really hard on my serve in last ten months, and now it’s coming back to me,” he said. “I have been really trying to use that serve and try to get some free points out of it, and tonight was working really great. I think I’m quite complete player. My game is based obviously on the baseline. I have powerful groundstrokes, but I need that serve so I can get more free points and put a lot of pressure on my opponent. That’s where I’m getting lately, so I’m happy with that.”

Djokovic is 20-0 in 2011 and he’s won 22 straight matches. Tomorrow he’ll play one of his best friends Viktor Troicki in the fourth round.

“This year we’ve played in Australia and Indian Wells and now here,” Djokovic added of playing Troicki. “More or less three out of four tournaments we played together. It’s never easy to play your friend, but we’re both professionals. We both want to win the match.

“We have known each other since we were nine. First tournament in my life that I’ve played, I won my first match and then I lost to him,” he said. “And he gave me a bagel. It was up to nine games. It was 9 0. I still have video of that match, and we still joke around a little bit.”
