2004 Nov 07 - Rusedski targets top 10
Greg Rusedski is confident he can break back into the world top 10 after a superb return to form following
the well publicised nandrolone doping scandal which threatened to bring a premature end to his career.
Speaking on Radio Five Live, Greg said:
"The goals are initially to get into the top 20 in the world, if not higher, into the top 10 again"
"I'm serving and moving well, the body feels strong. It's highly realistic to get that high in the world.
"It takes a while to get back to where you want to be but it's coming in the right direction now.
"Now I have two months to work on my fitness and to get stronger and a little bit quicker and if I can do
that, I think I can get back to the top of the game which is the most important thing for me.
"The beginning half of the year was a nightmare for me. I had to prove my innocence and had to fight very
hard to get through that. I won that battle, which I never was in doubt of losing.
"From thereon in I had to work to get my tennis career back. I had no help from the ATP Tour. I had to
start from the bottom - I was as low as 161 in the world and then I had to get all the way back into the top 50.
"I am very satisfied, very pleased with the way I've battled and the way I have managed to do it."
