Novak Djokovic Reveals Rafael Nadal Aim After US Open Win

Novak Djokovic is still keen to surpass Rafael Nadal as no.1 in the World after winning the US Open.

Djokovic won his third US Pont title on Sunday beating Juan Martin del Potro - 6-3, 7-6, 6-3.

The victory improves his rankings to 3rd in the World after they were officially published on Monday.

With Nadal exiting the tournament after a semi-final match at Flushing Meadows, the Spaniard is just 2,315 points ahead of Djokovic.

It is possible Djokovic could win the Masters 1000 series events in Shanghai, Paris and also the World Tour finals in London, winning all this will likely get him back to No.1.

When asked about his thoughts on his season to date, Djokovic said: “If you told me in February this year when I got the surgery that I'll win Wimbledon, US Open, and Cincinnati (becoming the first man to win all the Masters titles), it would be hard to believe.

"But, at the same time, there was always part of me that imagined and believed and hoped that I can get back to the desired level of tennis very soon.

"I expected, to be quite frank, after surgery that I'll be back on a high level quite fast. But it took me actually three, four months.

“In that process, I learned a lot about myself, learned to be patient, which was never really a stronger side of me.”

And Djokovic is confident he can overtake Nadal, but he isn’t getting ahead of himself.

He added: “I try to keep my both feet on the ground. I love this sport.

“As long as there is that flair in me, I really will keep on going. I still feel it.

“I still have a lot of passion. I think more than passion, it's just the will to work and to be dedicated every day."
