After days of silence, Novak Djokovic reappeared on his social profiles. "It was a privilege to represent Serbia at the Olympics," wrote the 20-time Grand Slam champion. “Thank you Tokyo and thank you to everyone who allowed the athletes to come together for the magic of the sport.
In my heart I know that I gave everything to fight and win a medal, I can't wait to come back stronger in Paris (the Olympics will be held in the French capital in 2024, ed). It was an incredible experience that I will never forget.
Good luck to all the Serbian athletes who are still fighting for a medal”. Finally, Djokovic congratulated all tennis players and all tennis players capable of winning an Olympic medal. The Serbian wanted to dedicate an Instagram story to all his colleagues, without exception, and this can only do him honor and send a clear message to those who described him with incorrect adjectives.
Stan Wawrinka opens up on 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. The World No.1 can surely create history at the US Open this year and complete his calendar Grand Slam. However, the real question is, who will stop him? Novak has had a rich history with the Canadian tournament.
He’s triumphed at the tournament and clinched the title four times in 2007, 2011, 2012, and 2016. Hence, not having him feature in the star-studded lineup will be an enormous blow for both officials and fans. However, given his recent display at the Olympics, his absence won’t gain too much attention.
