Novak Djokovic, the tennis icon, stands poised to pursue an elusive accolade: an Olympic singles gold medal. With a bronze medal from Beijing in 2008, the Serbian maestro eyes the upcoming 2024 Games in Paris for redemption.

World-renowned tennis champion Novak Djokovic has voiced his strong determination to clinch a singles gold medal at the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris 2024.

The Serbian athlete, fresh off his historic achievement as the first player to secure seven ATP Finals titles, expressed his unwavering ambition following a commanding straight-sets victory over Jannik Sinner.

Currently focused on leading Serbia’s charge in the Davis Cup, Djokovic sets his sights on another milestone, eyeing the prestigious Olympic honor to further embellish his illustrious career.

“Of course, the Olympics are a huge desire of mine – it’s a unique opportunity, I have a bronze from Beijing 2008,” Djokovic told Serbian reporters after his win in Turin.
“A lot of things are different at the Olympics – you can’t bring your whole team, some of the routines you usually have are limited; there are a lot of athletes from other sports, which gives you the energy on one hand, but it drains you on the other.
“All those things you mentioned – I want it all, why not, and we’ll see where it ends.”
The current top-ranked player in the world appears resolute about extending his illustrious career, expressing no inclination to retire.
Novak Djokovic made it clear that he intends to continue competing until the emerging talents like Sinner, Holger Rune, and Carlos Alcaraz consistently outperform him in the game.
“[Holger] Rune, Alcaraz and him [Sinner] are, you know, the big three, the next big three, if you want to call them,” said Djokovic after his ATP Finals victory.
“They’re going to carry this sport. I will hang on for as long as I feel like hanging on.
“As long as I’m able to still win against them on the big stage I’ll still keep going because you know, why stop if you’re still winning the biggest titles.
“But once they start to kick my butt, then I’ll consider having a little break or maybe a permanent break from professional tennis.”
