Serbian Tennis Federation insists Novak Djokovic will play at the Tokyo Olympics
World number one Djokovic has been vague on his participation at the Tokyo Olympic Games but the Serbian Tennis Federation insist he is going to play. Several big names have already declined to play at the event including Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem but Djokovic has neither committed nor declined officially.
Djokovic's official position was that he would only play if fans were allowed to attend the event. The situation with the pandemic in Japan is not ideal and the possibility of fans being barred still remains. Even so, the Federation put out a statement which reads:
“Novak has confirmed his desire to participate in the Olympic Games and we have already sent a list with his name on it to the Olympic Committee of Serbia. It will be forwarded from there.”
Djokovic is currently in Mallorca preparing for Wimbledon which is his main goal for now. The Serbian never shied away from representing Serbia and he still lacks a Gold Medal. His best result came in 2008 when he won the Bronze.
