Novak Djokovic touched down in Asia yesterday and ahead of his exhibition match Saturday in Taiwan, the Serb expressed his goal to finish the year No. 1.
“That’s one of the goals. Of course I want to be number one of the world again. It’s an ambition. It’s possible by the end of the year,” Novak told reporters. “I’ll try to focus on each tournament individually and see how it goes. I need to play really well because there are so many great players at the moment… so we’ll see.”
Djokovic is ranked No. 2 behind Roger Federer, but leads the Swiss in 2012 Ranking points. He lost his No. 1 ranking when Federer won Wimbledon in July.
Djokovic is scheduled to play Nicolas Almagro in an exhibition match Saturday at the National Taiwan Sport University in Linkou. From there he’ll head to Beijing where he’ll be the top seed at that event starting on Monday and then on to Shanghai.
