Wozniacki dating djokovic
Imagine the conversation as the neighbours meet outside their front doors. Forget Djokovic's remarkable 39-match winning run: this is all about the Serb's two Grand Slam titles.
You're obviously the best player in the world right now.""Well that's kind of you to say that. Caroline Wozniacki, the world No 1, and Novak Djokovic, unbeaten in 2011 and the game's best player on current form, are good friends too. I tell him: 'I'm trying to keep up with you, but it's not easy.' He says: 'But you're the No 1 and I'm not yet.' I'm like: 'Yeah, but if you keep up this work you will be soon'."

But injuries, to the wrist for Nishikori and elbow for Djokovic, have left each attempting recoveries and it was certainly evident here that both are still some way away. " The residents of Monte Carlo have become accustomed to living cheek-by-jowl with celebrities, but it is still remarkable that the world's best female tennis player and her male counterpart are next-door neighbours. I think I've had a very good season so far, but as I look over my shoulder I see him and he hasn't lost a match yet.Wozniacki, who has yet to make her Grand Slam breakthrough, is so used to being asked about whether she deserves to be world No 1 that she began a press conference at this year's Australian Open by answering the question before it was even put to her.If Edmund beats Medvedev, he may fancy his chances against a player he is yet to take a set off in three meetings.
Djokovic, however, will be keen to draw on the positives.
