Novak Djokovic has won his last 21 Grand Slam matches, earning titles at Wimbledon in July, the U.S. Open in September and the Australian Open in January.

If he can prolong that run on the red clay of Roland Garros over the coming two weeks, Djokovic will become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win four consecutive major tennis tournaments.

A remarkable achievement, to be sure. And one the 25-year-old Serb is trying not to expend too much energy pondering in advance of the French Open, which starts Sunday.

Djokovic says winning a fourth Grand Slam title in a row ''would definitely mean the world to me'' but he's tried to avoid thinking about it because he doesn't ''want to put too much pressure'' on himself.
