DJOKOVIC READY TO FIGHT IT OUT

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

World No. 1 No­vak Djokovic may be down but he’s def­i­nitely not go­ing to give away his top rank­ing eas­ily. The 29-year old Ser­bian said that he was felling re­ju­ve­nated after his two weeks off the court. “It makes me want to go on court and fight for ev­ery point be­cause there is some­thing to win at the end,” Djokovic said. The 12-time Grand Slam cham­pion will re­turn to ac­tion after los­ing in the Shang­hai masters semi­fi­nals two weeks ago. Djokovic has fin­ished four of the past five years as the world num­ber one and will hold on to the top rank­ing if he reaches the fi­nal in the Paris Masters. How­ever, if Djokovic doesn’t, Mur­ray can over­take him if the Scots­man can win, or reach the fi­nal and Djokovic falls be­fore the semis.
