ATP star Pablo Carreno Busta thinks that all the pressure at Olympics will be on world number one Novak Djokovic.
World number 11 believes the 34-year-old Serbian ‘seems unbeatable’ and ‘at a very high level’.
“Djokovic is first and foremost. It seems unbeatable. He’s at a very high level and if there’s a favourite in Tokyo, it’s him,” the Spaniard told Marseille News.
“But he’s also the rival to beat, the one with all the pressure behind. Either way, I’m not watching him or what he’s going to do. I have to focus on myself.”
Djokovic has won four of his five matches against Carreno Busta – with the only ‘defeat’ coming when he was defaulted for accidentally hitting a line judge with a ball at the 2020 US Open.
Nole is the undeniable favourite at the 2020 Olympic Games as his main opponents Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will not compete in Tokyo due to injuries.
