Novak Djokovic is delighted with his efforts so far in the French Open, but he hopes there is more to come.

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.”
