Djokovic's message to Nadal: I don't say like others that records are not an objective and then act differently

Novak Djokovic was in a chirpy mood on Sunday after his seventh Paris-Bercy title and 40th Masters 1000 title.

The Serbian did not hold his tongue when it came to analysing his greatness and ambition.

A few weeks ago, Rafael Nadal reflected in this way on Novak's record of 24 Grand Slam titles: "For him it would have been a bigger frustration not to get it. And maybe that's why he has achieved it, he has taken the ambition to the maximum (he has 24). I've been ambitious, but with a healthy ambition that has allowed me to see things with perspective, not to be frustrated, not to get more angry than necessary on the court when things weren't going well."

Djokovic responds to Nadal's comments

Djokovic seemed the be referencing Nadal's comments after he won in France.

"I'm going for every possible record, as many as I can break. I've never had a problem saying that. And that's why people don't like me. I didn't pretend like some people... to say that it's not my goal, and then behave differently....I always tried to be consistent with what I believe in"

He also said of the final against Grigor Dimitrov: "Today, I think we both were quite tight at the beginning, and I could see that he was running out of gas a little bit.

"Myself as well, but I somehow managed to find an extra shot over the net. I think the match was closer than the scoreline indicates, but another amazing win for me. I'm very proud of this one, considering what I've been through this week."
