The number 1 Tennins atlet Novak Djokovic has started his training session ahead of the Olympics after arriving in the Japanese capital, Tokyo.
The Serbian is surely eyeing an Olympic gold medal for the first time in his career and has a golden opportunity to win it after arch-rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal decided not to play in Tokyo.
Currently, the 2021 Wimbledon champions are enjoying some quality time off the pitch. He met a number of athletes from different sports and the athletes did not miss the opportunity to take selfies with the tennis star.
Wherever Djokovic moved, people stopped him to take pictures or chat for a moment. Interestingly, the world number 1 tennis player did not refuse anyone’s invitation and enjoyed the moment. In a video, there is even a crowd of people following him as he walks towards the athlete’s village.
The athletes who took part in Tokyo did not forget to upload a series of photos they took with the 2021 French Open champions.
Argentine volleyball athlete Fernanda Pereyra uploaded a photo with a Serbian tennis player through her Instagram account. Meanwhile, handball athlete Anastasija Babovic and Serbian volleyball athlete Tijana Boskovic also had the opportunity to take a selfie with the tennis player and upload the photo via Instagram.
Apart from these athletes, many fans also had the golden opportunity to take pictures with Djokovic and upload them through their social media accounts.
A definite winner of the 2021 Australian Open season, he has established himself as not only an ambassador for tennis, but an ambassador for all sports.
The tennis player who has won 20 Grand Slam titles will start his campaign at the Tokyo Olympics tomorrow (24/7) against Bolivian tennis player Hugo Dellien. Fans expect a lot from him and want him to score a Golden Slam – the achievement when a player wins all four Grand Slams and an Olympic gold medal in the same season – this season.
Without a doubt, Djokovic looks unstoppable given his recent form. However, the history of the Serbian national tennis player at the Olympics is not so bright. The only medal he has won to date is the bronze medal in Beijing 2008.
