Andy Murray may be having a forgettable head-to-head record against top nemesis Novak Djokovic, but that does not deter him from aiming to get the better of the latter in his quest to reach the zenith of the rankings.

Murray, who’s second to just Djokovic in the world rankings, believes that despite a colossal gap of over 8,000 points, he can ride on some incredible performances at the Grand Slams next year to overtake the in-form Serb.

“Although I’m a long way behind Novak in the rankings right now, that can change a lot if a few matches go your way,” Murray was quoted as saying by World Tennis Magazine. “The Grand Slam semi-finals and finals are worth the big, big points. To make No.1 in the world I’ll need to win a couple of them. Hopefully I can do that next year.”

Murray, who lost out on five off the six battles with Djokovic this year, didn’t desist from heaping praise on his counterpart, who managed to pull off three majors this year alone.

“I think this year, he (Djokovic) has obviously played extremely well. He’s found ways to win matches when he hasn’t been playing his best and I think that’s what all of the best players do and he’s done it consistently well this year.”
