Rising Serbian star Laslo Djere has set a big goal for himself as he is aiming to make the top-20 before the season ends. Djere, who started the season ranked at No. 93 in the world, has made a notable jump since the beginning of the year as he is now enjoying a career-high ranking of No.
27. "The goal is to enter the top-20. I think that if I keep playing like I have been playing so far (this year) that's possible... And I really believe that I can finish the year inside the top-20," Djere exclusively told Sport Klub.
During his interview with Sport Klub, Djere also spoke about his upcoming grass season plans and hopes. The Serbian said he prefers grass over hard as he is planning to use Halle and Eastbourne as a warm-up for Wimbledon.
The 24-year-old was expected to open his grass season this week in Stuttgart but withdrew from the tournament. Djere also said he can make a good result at Wimbledon but admitted that winning a few matches in Halle and Eastbourne would help him in his bid to achieve a good result at The Championships.
The Serb debuted in the Wimbledon main draw last year but failed to register his first win at The All England Club as he was beaten by Italian Paolo Lorenzi in the first round. A good grass season would help Djere continue his ranking rise as the Serb has no points to defend since he only played at Wimbledon during last year's grass season.
