Re: Is this Djokovic's last chance for the Olympic Gold?
I think Djokovic will play long enough to still be playing in 2020, but considering he'll be age 33 at that point and the current promising group of teenagers will be in the 21-23 year old range, plus guys who might be Grand Slam champions like Thiem (26-27 years old) and Kyrgios (25 years old) will be in their primes, IMO this year is Djokovic's last really GOOD chance to win Olympic gold.
Having said the above, the top level guys in the Open Era who have stayed very good into their early-to-mid 30s (essentially Ken Rosewall, Jimmy Connors, Andre Agassi, and Roger Federer) were all, like Djokovic, excellent returners. I don't see Djokovic as a #1 player in 2020, but he probably will be a top 10 player and possibly top 5 player, barring injury.
