Novak Djokovic reveals which match he wishes to get back

Novak celebration

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has revealed that if he could get back one match would be one of his Olympic matches against either Great Britain’s Andy Murray or Argentine Juan Martin del Potro. Djokovic, a 17-time Grand Slam champion, has accomplished pretty much everything in the game but he still lacks a gold medal at the Olympics.

The Serb’s best Olympic result came in London eight years ago, when he made the semifinal before suffering a tight straight-set loss against eventual gold medal champion Murray. Four years later at the 2016 Rio Olympics, the 32-year-old Serb suffered a straight-set first round loss to former world No 3.

del Potro. “The Olympic Games, definitely. Either the Murray semifinal in London, on the courts of Wimbledon, or the match against del Potro from Rio de Janeiro. Probably, (I would choose) the second one. “Only if I didn’t feel pain in that wrist and if I could have a chance to once again play that tournament…

I was at the peak of my form, I was feeling great, I was really motivated and inspired just from being there. Well, yes, everything happens for a reason and I’m trying to view those losses and painful moments as permanent lessons.”

Djokovic’s big goal for this season was to put himself in a position to be at his best at the Tokyo Olympics — where he would be aiming for his maiden Olympic gold medal. The Serb started the season 18-0 and claimed three titles but he will have to wait until at least 2021 to attack the Tokyo Olympics.
