Novak Djokovic was dumped out of the Olympic tournament in the semi-finals.
On Friday, the world No. 1 played against Germany’s Alexander Zverev, losing two sets to the latter.
Djokovic’s loss means he can no longer compete for 2021 Golden Slam – winning all four Grand Slam tournaments and an Olympic gold medal in the same calendar year.
No male player has ever achieved it before, and the Serbian was looking forward to becoming the first ever tennis player to do that.
After the match, the world No. 5 approached Nole to apologize for ending his dream of Golden Slam.
“You’re one of the greatest of all time. I’m sorry for this,” Zvered said.
Previously, Djokovic complained of weather conditions in Tokyo.
“I’ve played tennis now professionally for 20 years, and I’ve never faced this kind of conditions in my entire life on a consecutive daily basis,” He said, according to The Telegraph.
