Novak Djokovic: I’m officially No 1, what more can I ask for?
It has been the “most amazing last five months” for Novak Djokovic so it’s no surprise that he is “feeling good” ahead of the ATP World Tour Finals.
Despite finishing runner-up to Karen Khachanov at the Paris Masters, Djokovic returned to the top of the world rankings on Monday on the back of a brilliant second half of 2018.
After a sluggish start to the year, the Serb won Wimbledon and the US Open to take his Grand Slam tally to 14 and he also added the Cincinnati and Shanghai Masters to his trophy collection.
Although he came up short in Bercy on Sunday, the 31-year-old has plenty to be happy about ahead of the season-finale in London.
“I’m satisfied of course and I’m going to be No 1 (on Monday) officially. And what more can I ask for? I won 20-plus matches in a row and had a most amazing last five months of the year,” he said.
“I’m getting into the season finale with a lot of confidence and feeling good about my game. Hopefully health-wise, physically I’ll be fine in a week’s time when it all starts in London (ATP Tour Finals).”
