Djokovic makes final Tokyo Olympics decision
July 15, 2021
Novak Djokovic goes to the Tokyo Olympics, protecting alive his likelihood for a “Golden Slam.”
Djokovic, 34, posted on Twitter that he had booked his flight and was proud to characterize Serbia on the Olympics. After he gained Wimbledon on Sunday for his record-tying twentieth profession Grand Slam title, Djokovic stated he did not know if he was going to play in Tokyo.
If the top-ranked Djokovic wins gold in males’s singles and on the U.S. Open, he could be the primary male tennis participant to finish a “Golden Slam” — all 4 Grand Slam tournaments and the Olympics in the identical calendar yr.
Steffi Graf is the one girl to have achieved it, in 1988.
“I’m very proud to pack for Tokyo and be a part of our nationwide workforce within the battle for the brightest medals on the Olympic arenas,” Djokovic wrote.
“For me, the sport for Serbia has at all times been a particular pleasure and motivation and I’ll do my greatest to make us all pleased! Let’s go.”
Whereas Djokovic is headed for Tokyo, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Dominic Thiem and Nick Kyrgios are among the many high males’s gamers who will not be competing within the Olympics.
