Novak Djokovic, the best tennis player in the world, is ready to write new pages in the history of sports at the Olympic Games, and before the trip to Tokyo, he addressed the singing of the anthem “God of Justice”.
Djokovic is waiting for a flight to the capital of Japan, and before leaving for the “Nikola Tesla” airport, he had something to say. Recall, Nole started the 330th week at the top of the ATP list, which continued to increase his own record for the number of weeks spent at the top of world tennis.
At the same time, he is going to Tokyo as the winner of 20 Grand Slam titles, with convincingly the most weeks at the top of the world ranking list and with a better mutual score against the biggest rivals Nadal and Federer, who will not be at the Games.
Novak was preparing for Tokyo in Montenegro on concrete, because this surface will be represented in the campaign for the gold medal, which he lacks in his rich collection. In Japan, selector Viktor Troicki and Miomir Kecmanović are already waiting for him, as well as tennis players Ivana Jorović, Aleksandra Krunić and Nina Stojanović.

“It’s nice to go to Japan, from Serbia, in this way, I have the highest ambitions. I’m going for gold, it’s no secret, it’s a big goal, like four grand slams this year. I prepared well, I had a lot of matches won in front of Tokyo, which infuses additional self-confidence and energy. When you play for your country, it is the greatest part and privilege, the most beautiful moments for an athlete. I play individual sports and it means a lot to me when I can play for Serbia, I won national team competitions, I miss that Olympic medal, “said Nole.
He also discovered what especially motivated him at the last Games…
“You can’t experience what you experience at the Games anywhere else. You compete with the best in the world, what sets it apart from all other competitions is the fact that you are in the Olympic Village with everyone from all over the world and you can share time, eat under the same roof, sleep in the same blocks. I don’t know what it’s like now because of the Kovid protocol in Japan, but I gladly remember that from my previous participation in the Games, and that was an additional incentive for my further career. “
Djokovic then referred to the tournament itself and the dismissals of numerous tennis players.
“I would not say that it is an unconventional way of preparation. Getting the best out of the given conditions, not everything can be ideal, I am both a father and a husband, not just a tennis player, so I dedicate myself to my family when I am not at tournaments. The preparations were great, I had a great sparring partner, it was also a great time. They gave me the wind in my back that I carry to Tokyo. Although there are dismissals of some players from the top in the tournament, there are still a lot of them there, Medvedev, Cicipas and Zverev as the three most difficult rivals. It is a long tournament, anything can happen, the final is played in three won sets, it needs to be reached. Playing at the Olympics brings special emotions, I have experienced that in the past, so I will look to treat it like other tournaments, to stay focused on the goal. “
In the end, he sang the anthem “God of Justice” together with those present and delighted everyone before the trip to Tokyo.
