Novak Djokovic: Quite an achievement, but I don’t want to stop here
Novak Djokovic is delighted with his efforts so far in the French Open, but he hopes there is more to come.
The 12-time Grand Slam winner underwent a small medical procedure after the Australian Open and he struggled with form after that as he suffered a string of early exits.
However, it looks like has hit form at the right time as he reached the quarter-final at Roland Garros with a solid 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win over Fernando Verdasco.
“It’s important for me, especially considering all the circumstances that I was in the last 15 months,” he said.
“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.
“I had no problems going the distance in long rallies and I won in three sets against a player who is in form, especially for this surface.”
