Djokovic eyes French Open final

HE MAY have proven himself the undisputed king of the men’s game with his gruelling Australian Open triumph, but Novak Djokovic has already identified his next target.

The world No1, who beat Rafael Nadal in Sunday’s six-hour epic, has set his sights on reaching the final of the French Open, the only grand slam he does not currently hold, and is convinced he can do it.

“I want to do well and get to my first final at least in Paris,” he said. “I have never been to the final there and I have a feeling that I am ready this year to achieve that.”

Djokovic, 24, has reached the semi-finals at Roland Garros three times, including last year when he lost to Roger Federer. The Serb is also keen to add Olympic gold to his growing list of honours.

He added: “I’m prioritising the grand slams and the Olympics. That doesn’t mean I won’t perform my best at other tournaments but it’s the grand slams that matter most.”
