World No.2 Novak Djokovic of Serbia says that he tries his best to help his country, and will continue to do so in the future as well.

"I want to help my country in many ways but not as a politician," Djokovic said in an interview. "Novak Djokovic Foundation helps Serbia a lot by taking care of children with special needs, in order to provide them with proper education. We open kindergartens, playgrounds, we help institutions, and this means a lot to my country.

Djokovic further said that he is satisfied with this season, winning a number of tournaments, besides triumphing at the Australian Open in January.

"I believe that the year was successful for me. I consistently played well and it makes me really happy. The truth is I had three heavy defeats in Grand Slam tournaments, so I will learn from these experiences and try to correct errors in 2014. The hardest was the loss to Rafael Nadal in the semi-final of Roland Garros. I wanted so much to defeat him, but that did not happen. However, Nadal showed how strong he is. I am really impressed with how he controlled the situation and returned to victories," he added.
