Tennis – Novak aims to complete set


Novak Djokovic, 3/1 with Bet365 to win the tournament, says he is determined to make history by claiming the title at the Cincinnati Masters.

Djokovic reached round three with a three-set victory over French left-hander Adrian Mannarino, with the Serb eager to go all the way and become the first player to win all nine ATP Masters 1000 events.
Having lost in the final in Cincinnati on no fewer than five occasions, Djokovic said: “I think it adds more to the motivation rather than pressure. I really want to win this tournament and I have been trying.
“I’m still in the tournament this year and, hopefully, I can get a shot at the title, but I need to definitely play better than I have in the first couple matches.
“I have been training a lot and trying to find the game and the level of tennis that I want to be on. I am motivated to get far in this tournament, without a doubt.”
