  • Novak Djokovic 'Faith an plays important role in my life and tennis'

Federer ended a near-five-year Grand Slam drought last year when he went on to add another three to his resume with two wins in the Australian Open and a record eighth Wimbledon crown.

Extraordinary stamina, flexibility, skill and burning desire which he has demonstrated for much of an illustrious career earned him major title number 14 at the US Open last month. When fit, Nadal is always a threat and is just three behind Federer after his win at the French Open earlier this year.

Victory means Djokovic's winning streak now stands at 18 matches as he closes to just 35 points behind world leader Nadal in the race to be No. 1 after the season-ending ATP Finals in London. I'm sure he proved everybody right.' Commenting on his relationship with football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Djokovic said: 'We are friends, we know each other for several years.

"And, for me, being No 3 in the world wasn't enough".

"I don't need to describe him, that's all I can say". I just was not satisfied with that.

"But then I reached a kind of mentally low point in my career, I think it was after Roland-Garros, one of the four Slams, and I had lost, I was two sets to love up".

"I was saying before that I have never played on faster courts here in Shanghai, so this year more than ever I needed a lot of success with the first serves in, and I have had plenty of success with first serves and high per cent of first serves in every match. I just felt like a whole wave of energy that I was kind of thriving on from that moment onwards".

Novak Djokovic extended his incredible form at the Shanghai Masters, winning a record fourth title Sunday to set his sights on the world No. 1 spot. I remember going to my parents and talking about this and that, and I just cried, and, 'I don't know if this is worth it. "Toughen up!' You know?" But now when I look back on it, it's a very good lesson. "I was playing good, really, I was really happy how I played", he said. "So I'm going to try to learn something".

The two players, now ranked number one and two in the world, will face each other at King Abdullah Sports City on December 22.

The 32-year-old Nadal could return from his latest injury for the Paris Masters, which starts at the end of this month.
