Thank you to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and everyone who helped us unite for the magic of sport.
I know in my heart that I gave it my all to fight for a medal, and I hope to come back stronger at the 2024 Paris Olympics," Djokovic wrote in the tweet. “It was an incredible experience that I will never forget.
Good luck to all Serbian athletes still competing for a medal,” added the 20-time Grand Slam champion.
Wawrinka praises Novak Djokovic
In a recent interview with Darren Cahill, Stanislas Wawrinka has spoken on Novak Djokovic and his 2021 form.
He also spoke highly of the competitiveness that Djokovic possessed while playing against Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Stan is also looking forward to the upcoming US Open campaign, although he will not be playing. “Well, you never expect a player to be ready to win four Grand Slams, but I think what they show us since 15 years, even more between Roger, Rafa, and Novak, it’s, they are just pushing and pushing and pushing the extreme limit of how well you can play in tennis.
Novak a bit more the last few years. His level is for sure something special,” said Wawrinka. Wawrinka is all praise for Novak Djokovic to win the fourth Grand Slam of the year. “It’s tough to really say for me, I always feel that he will win because of the way he is playing, the way he can close match, and the way he can find his way.
I always feel he is going to win,” said Wawrinka. Novak Djokovic was the favorite for gold going into the tournament. However, in addition to the gold, but he also lost his bronze match against Pablo Carreno Busta, and ended up breaking and throwing racquets on course.
The animated star was left shellshocked as he was beaten thrice in two days. With one defeat following another, Novak withdrew from his mixed doubles bronze match, citing injury concerns. However, his appearance at the upcoming Rogers Cup now hangs in the balance.
