Second Serve

Novak Djokovic is setting his sights on the 2024 Olympic Games. The World No.1, who failed to medal at the Tokyo Olympics last week, took to social media to express his gratitude about having competed at the Games.

“It was a true privilege to represent Serbia at the Olympics,” he wrote. “Thank you, Tokyo and everyone that helped us come together for the magic of sport. 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.”

Djokovic's interest should come as a relief to his fans. The Serb is still planning to be in top form three years from now, but it's a scary propisition for the rest of the ATP Tour.

Djokovic, a 20-time major champion, lost out on his bid to become the first male player to even win the Golden Slam in tennis, consisting of all four Grand Slam titles and an Olympic singles gold medal. But the World No.1 is still in the hunt for the calendar-year Grand Slam. He can achieve that feat at the US Open in New York, and if he does he will become the first male player to achieve the feat since Rod Laver in 1969.
