Only Rafael Nadal has this reputation in the ‘Triratna’ in tennis. Roger Federer could never, nor could Novak Djokovic. Djokovic is expected to make a name for himself at the Tokyo Olympics with the withdrawal of Nadal as well as Federer.
Kirtita won gold in the Olympics. Djokovic has never won gold at the Olympics. Rafael Nadal has this achievement. Like Roger Federer, Djokovic does not have this achievement. Djokovic came to the Tokyo Olympics to get rid of that regret.
It has to be said that Djokovic’s Olympic gold medal is still elusive. He lost to German star Alexander Zverev 2-1 in the semis today.
Federer can also reassure himself that he won gold in doubles tennis with compatriot Stanislas Vavrinka at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Djokovic’s forehead has not yet joined!
Djokovic’s goal this time was to win the Golden Grand Slam. In the same year, he won gold at the Australian Open, US Open, French Open and Wimbledon, as well as the Olympics, which is called the Golden Grand Slam.
No one in the history of tennis has achieved this feat except one Steffi Graf. Graf achieved this feat in 1998 at the age of 19.
After losing the first set 6-1, Zverev turned around in the next two sets. He won the next two sets 6-3 and 6-1. After winning 10 of the last 11 games, Zverev surpassed Djokovic incredibly, advancing to the finals. In the other semi-final of the day, Russia’s Karen Khachanov advanced to the final by defeating Pablo Karenia Busta of Spain 6-3, 6-3. In the final, Zverev will fight against Khachanov.
