World number one Novak Djokovic said that he now has his eyes set on to the upcoming Grand Slam event – the Roland Garros – where he is aiming to attain a Career Grand Slam just like what his rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have achieved. The Serb just won his sixth Grand Slam title at the Australian Open 2013 on Sunday, beating friend Andy Murray in four sets.

Djokovic reached his first French Open final in June last year but lost to Rafael Nadal in a four-set match that lasted two days. Nadal went on to set a record in Paris – having won seven French Open titles.

The Serbian top-ranked player only needs the claycourt Slam to have the Career Grand Slam.

“I want to go all the way at [Roland Garros],” said Djokovic. “I went to the final last year and had a great match against Rafa, but he’s always the favourite on that surface and he’s the ultimate player to beat on clay. But I think if I continue on playing well, stay healthy, I can have a chance.”
