Djokovic Targets No.1 After China Triumph
Article info

World number two Novak Djokovic has played down his chances of a quick return to the summit of men’s tennis but celebrated glory after winning the China Open on Sunday.

Djokovic defeated France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6, 6-2 in the final in Beijing to claim the silverware and enhance his chances of returning to the world’s number one ranking.

“This (win) will definitely help me in that race, but it’s still quite open,” Djokovic said afterwards.

“There are still tournaments to come, big ones. Shanghai, obviously the first 1000 event, everybody is playing there except Nadal.

“I want to try to get as far as I can in the tournament, obviously taking one match at a time as I always do.”

On the Beijing-based tournament, Djokovic added: “It’s been one of my most successful tournaments. This is where I love to play. I love the conditions and I have lots of support from the fans who are very loyal and very nice.”
