Djokovic targets Roland Garros in 2013

by: Matt Cronin December 27, 2012

Novak Djokovic says that winning Roland Garros for the first time is his main goal in 2013, but he would also like to raise the winner’s trophies at the other majors.

“Right now I can approach a new season with a lot of confidence because I won the last big tournament of the year in London [ATP World Tour Finals] and hoping that I can continue playing well,” Djokovic told the media at the Abu Dhabi exhibition. “So ambitions are always high. I want to win every Grand Slam that I play, want to win every big tournament that I play. So there is no difference for the next year’s ambition. … Roland Garros is always at the top of my priority list and ambitions. It’s the only Slam I haven’t won. I played in the final, which is a step further than ever before, this year. It was an incredible final and a great experience also.”
