·1 min

Novak Djokovic is set to represent Serbia at the Paris Olympics, according to an announcement made by the country’s Olympic Committee. This comes after Djokovic tore his meniscus during the French Open, causing doubts about his participation. He underwent successful knee surgery, but it remains uncertain if he will be fit in time for Wimbledon. Djokovic, a highly accomplished tennis player, has yet to win an Olympic gold medal, with his best result being a bronze in Beijing 2008. The tennis matches at the Paris Games will be held at Roland Garros, adding an additional challenge for players transitioning from grass courts to clay. Djokovic has expressed his strong desire to win a medal for his country at the Olympics. He will be joined on Team Serbia by Dušan Lajović, ranked 56th in the world.
