Novak Djokovic, who will represent Serbia in the Tokyo Olympics 2021, is widely considered the overwhelming favorite to win the men's singles gold medal.

After Tokyo 2020, I will start to think about the US Open. I've met Blanka Vlasic recently and she told me that in the future people won’t remember the conditions or whether there were people in the stands, but who has won medals," Djokovic said.

The 34-year-old went on to claim that his final decision came down to the desire to represent his country at the biggest sporting stage of all. "Representing your country at the Olympics is a feeling like no other," Djokovic said.

"I am not overjoyed about playing with no fans present or about the various coronavirus restrictions effective in Japan, but representing your country in the Olympics is indispensable." Down on the men’s section, only one out of the ‘Big 3’ is going to be battling for gold at Tokyo.

After the withdrawals of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic is the firm favorite. His main competition will be 2016 gold medalist Andy Murray, Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas and Germany’s Alexander Zverev.
