‘I am my own biggest critic, but it couldn’t be much better than this,’ says Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic says he is struggling to fault his tennis right now, even if he is specifically looking to.

Djokovic has looked imperious at Roland Garrros this week, and he continued that rich vein of form by thrashing Ricardas Berankis 6-1, 6-4, 6-1 on Court Philippe Chatrier on Saturday to march into the fourth round.

It was a powerful display from the world number one, who set a new French Open record by reaching the fourth round for a 12th successive time.

“I am pretty happy about the match today. Even if it looks simple, it is not the case,” Djokovic said in his on-court interview.

“The bounce was lower, so I had to adapt. The conditions today were very different from my previous match. Every match, adapting is the job.”

In a later interview with Eurosport, Djokovic added that he feels he is playing pretty close to his maximum right now, and that bodes well for the rest of the tournament.

“I’m always my biggest critic and you can always do certain things better,” he said.

“It couldn’t be much better than this, especially the first and third sets. I served well, moved well and made him play.”
