Novak Djokovic ATP Cup 2021

Novak Djokovic ‘looking forward to coming back stronger’ at Paris Olympics

Novak Djokovic has spoken of knowing in his heart that he “gave it everything to fight for a medal” after his Tokyo Olympics campaign.

The Serbian said he will never forget his “unbelievable experience” at his fourth Olympics, and revealed he is “looking forward to coming back stronger” at the 2024 Games in Paris.

The world number one missed out on a medal at the delayed 2020 Games – ending his hopes of winning a Golden Calendar Slam.

Djokovic lost to Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals, and Pablo Carreno Busta in the bronze medal match, of the men’s singles event.

He then withdrew from the mixed doubles bronze medal match through injury – after he and partner Nina Stojanovic had fallen in the last four.

“It was a true privilege to represent Serbia at the Olympics. Thank you Tokyo and everyone that helped us come together for the magic of sport,” the 34-year-old wrote in an Instagram post.

“I know in my heart I gave it everything to fight for a medal, and I’m looking forward to coming back stronger in Paris. This was an unbelievable experience I will never forget. Good luck to all the Serbian athletes still competing for a medal.”
