As the most phenomenal season of his career draws to a close, Novak Djokovic says he is still trying to enjoy the moment and is not worrying about how to repeat his success in 2012.

Ten tournament victories in 2011, including triumphs at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, the US Open and five Masters events, have catapulted the Serbian to the top of the world rankings for the first time in his career.

He has been beaten just four times and is on course to regain the Paris Masters title he last won in 2009 after a 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 defeat of compatriot Viktor Troicki in the third round yesterday.

After Paris, Djokovic will close the season at the ATP Tour Finals in London, and he says he is not looking any further ahead than his last two assignments of the year. "Honestly, I try not to think about next year, because I'm trying to enjoy the present and the incredible year that I've had," he said.

"And it's still not over. There is still this tournament to be finished and another one in London. I think the World Tour Finals, the best eight players in the world, is a crown for all the achievements. Every match is on the top level."
