New Delhi: Satisfied with his "consistent" performance at the international circuit, the Thailand Open champion K Srikanth says he wants to sign off the year with a top-25 finish.

"I think I performed well and was consistent after winning the Thailand Open. It is my second year in international circuit and I am happy with myself. The victory gave me a lot of confidence," said Srikanth, who reached the Japan Open quarterfinals last week.

"I want to be the world number one one day. There are four more tournaments to go in the year. I am right now ranked 39th but after the Japan Open, I might break into the top-30 and I want to finish the year within top 25," he added.
