Novak Djokovic was definitely one of the favorites to win the gold medal at the Olympics but the Serbian did not even manage to get on the podium, losing in straight sets to Juan Martin Del Potro.
The first trainer of Djokovic, Jelena Gencic, is convinced that behind the performance he is a little subdued, as there are personal problems that prevent the Serb from concentrating 100% on the court:
“I regret that we have not been able to win a medal, I never expected this result from him at the Olympics. Nole definitely has individual problems that he does not want to expose. I hope his team can understand what are the causes that prevent him from expressing his best tennis on the court and what has affected his level of play. "
Then Gencic said she was very surprised to see her former pupil more fatigued than their opponents:
"It's never easy to do the same thing each week, pack the suitcase and leave for a new place. A few days ago I read a newspaper the headline 'now I go to Toronto, after all '... What does ‘after all’ mean? I'm worried because he keeps saying he is tired. He must verify whether it is physical or mental fatigue. "
