World no.1 Novak Djokovic has confirmed that he will compete in the Tokyo Olympic Games, which will get underway next Sunday.
Djokovic, who lifted his 3rd grand slam title this year, was undecided about appearing at the Tokyo Games after the organizers decided that fans would not be allowed to attend, because of a spike in Coronavirus infections. But, yesterday, Djoko changed his mind and said that he would be “proudly” joining Team Serbia for the Games.
The Serbiantor claimed a record equaling 20th men's grand slam title last weekend after clinching his 3rd Wimbledon title in a row and his 6th overall at the Center Court in London. In the meantime, some prominent tennis players including Angelique Kerber, Johanna Konta and Dan Evans withdrew from the summer Olympics to join Serena Williams, Simona Halep, Naomi Osaka, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, who’d earlier refused to compete in the games.
