It’s only December but 2-time finalist Novak Djokovic is already thinking about the French Open. During his visit to India this weekend, Djokovic talked about the one missing Slam on his resume.
“I have been pretty close to winning the French Open title and have played a few finals and semifinals but I have a problem, his name is Nadal,” Djokovic told the Times of India.
“Losing only one match in his career is credit to him (Nadal). I respect him a lot, Roger (Federer) and other guys. I am going to push. I am going to keep trying. The last couple of years the way I have played on clay courts against Rafa, it has given me enough reason to believe that I can make it. I got the self belief, I know can do it. Hopefully by the end of my career, I will get one trophy there.”
Djokovic also confirmed that Boris Becker has been retained for another season. After an eventful 2014 which saw the birth of his new baby and the marriage to Jelena, Djokovic finished the season No. 1 for a third time.
