Through a publication on his social networks, Novak Djokovic showed his trip to Tokyo, a place where he will seek to make his wish come true in the form of Olympic gold. They were joined by a curious Juan Martín del Potro.
“I am going to play the Olympic Games out of patriotism, because of my feelings towards Serbia. I am not in the least delighted with the fact of playing without an audience or with the different restrictions due to coronavirus in Japan, but representing your country in the Olympic Games is essential “ stated the current ATP ranking number one and bronze medal winner in Beijing 2008, in his latest public statement.
And the Argentine, his executioner in the first round of the Rio 2016 games, came out to support him: “I’ll be watching you! This time you have your chance, friend.”
Although, in this case, he will not have Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer as contenders either, it is the great chance for the Serbian to climb to the top of the podium and to try the long-awaited US Open Golden slam.
