New Delhi: Rohan Bopanna is content that the sacrifices he made in his tennis journey paid off as he became world number three but the Indian tennis star's hunger for success has only increased and he now wants to become number one besides notching his first Grand Slam trophy.

Bopanna's career graph has shown a steady rise and in the last two years, he has emerged as a force to reckon with in the doubles arena.

Of his eight titles, six have come in the last three years. Season 2012 was remarkable when he made six finals and won two titles with compatriot Mahesh Bhupathi. In 2011 he won all the three finals with Pakistan's Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi.
