“It’s quite an achievement to get to the quarters of a Slam for me. I have been many, many times in quarters of Roland Garros and all the slams, and of course I do appreciate it, considering it’s a different kind of situation for me.
“But I don’t want to stop here.”
The Serb believes he is starting to play like his old self again.
“Right now, considering I played almost four hours in my last match, I felt pretty good physically,” he said.
