Neither in singles nor in mixed doubles Novak Djokovic could reach the final. Together with Nina Stojanovic they fell to the Russian couple formed by Elena Vesnina and Aslan Karatsev by 7-6 (4) and 7-5 in one hour and 46 minutes of play, in a match where the Russian duo were more solid than the Balkan couple at the peak of the match.
In this way, the world’s number one will settle for playing for two bronzes at the Tokyo Olympics. In singles he fell to Alexander Zverev 1-6, 6-3 and 6-1.
In the doubles it will be a completely Russian final, since his rival in the final will be the couple formed by Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Andrey Rublev, who defeated Australians Ashleigh Barty and John Peers 5-7, 6-4 and 13-11 in the semifinals.
