Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic, aiming to finish the year as World No 1, said yesterday that he was getting inspiration from a $10 million charity tie up with a Japanese clothing firm.

Cheap-chic giant Uniqlo has put up the money for the fund, which is being fronted by Djokovic, fresh from his back-to-back wins at the China Open and the Shanghai Masters in the past fortnight.

“This kind of humanitarian work always helps me play positive,” said the 25-year-old World No 2, who began a sponsorship deal with the firm last May.
