In Novak Djokovic’s words: ‘I believe I can fulfill my goal and reach the top-10..’

Novak Djokovic

The 19-year-old Novak Djokovic was one of the players to beat in early 2007, winning the title in Adelaide and reaching the fourth round at the Australian Open, losing to Roger Federer in straight sets. After the semi-final in Rotterdam and the quarter-final in Dubai, Novak headed to the first Masters 1000 event of the season in Indian Wells as world no.

13, standing as one of the favorites and playing well in the opening four rounds to oust all the opponents in straight sets. Novak lost serve three times against Robby Ginepri, beating the American 6-4, 6-4 and raising his level to drop only seven games versus Evgeny Korolev and Julien Benneteau.

In the quarters, Djokovic took down David Ferrer 6-3, 6-4 in an hour and 17 minutes for the first Masters 1000 semi-final, dropping 17 points in ten service games and suffering one break of serve.

“I think I have proved myself as one of the title favorites, both with my results this season and here in Indian Wells. I believe I can fulfill my goal and reach the top-10 this year; I don’t rush anything or chase records and results; everything will come with time and experience.
I have to stay focused on my tennis and make further improvements. It was warm out there but I felt good physically. I didn’t play that well against Robby Ginepri in the first match but the next three clashes were excellent.

Vajda and I started to work together nine months ago; he is giving me the right advice, improving my game a lot. When you are in the top-20, you don’t have to work on something special but rather some small things you can’t notice by yourself and the mental side of the game.

That’s why it’s important to have a coach. Also, Mark Woodforde is here with us in Indian Wells and Miami. He is the tournament director in Adelaide where I won the title in January; Marian and I spoke to him and he is with us as a support.

I’m trying to improve my serve&volley with him; I should use my opportunities more often and rush to the net, as I have powerful groundstrokes and the abilities to open the court.” After the match, Novak Djokovic said he believes he could reach the top-10 in the rest of the season, seeking the title in Indian Wells after playing on a high level.
