During a (horizontal?) media appearance today at the Rogers Cup in Montreal, Novak Djokovic says that he’s “eager to win some more match” after taking a break and hitting the U.S. talk show circuit.

Calling it the “best eight months my life”, Djokovic went 48-1 winning eight titles including the Australian Open and his first Wimbledon in July. The Serb now has his sights firmly set on a first US Open title.

He’ll begin that push this week in Montreal and then Cincinnati starting on August 15, just without the flip-flops.

In his first official match as a World No. 1, Djokovic will play the winner of Nikolay Davydenko and Flavio Cipolla on Tuesday.

“I have the game that brought me to No. 1, to where I am,” Djokovic told Tom Tebbutt. “Of course, there’s always something to improve, that’s why we’re working for hours and hours every day. I think I have the game that is good enough, on any surface, to beat the best players in the world.”

Djokovic won the 2007 Canadian Open in Montreal.

Brando Says:

Djokovic is the absolute favourite in any tournament he enters from here onwards. And considering this is his best and favourite surface that is bad news for the rest.

Hope things don’t go, er, sideways for Nole, after the long break. :)
