Close friend of Serbia’s legendary tennis star Novak Djokovic, Viktor Troicki, has revealed that he is prioritising Paris Olympics ahead of the French Open. The 36-year-old is often regarded as the greatest player in the history of men’s tennis in the Open era, having won as many as 24 Grand Slam.
Djokovic is currently taking part at the Roland Garros where he booked his place in the second round of the mega-evet after beating Pierre-Hugues Herbert with a score of 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4. Ahead of the second-round clash against Spain’s Roberto Carballes Baena, close friend of Djokovic Troicki was quoted in a report where he stated that the reigning world number one is prioritsing Olympics over French Open.
"He is not currently the Nole we are used to,” he said. "But in Paris, at the Grand Slam, everything can turn around. In the last five years, his focus has been on the Grand Slams. I think the Olympics are his priority this year, but again he wants to show that he cares about playing well at the Slams. I hope that he will repeat the history of previous years when he came in shy and without self-confidence, which he gained through matches, built his form and eventually won tournaments. We didn't even expect him to win the Garros last year but he did."
