You play Olympics for your country and win gold medal. That is the significance, representing your country.
Yeah but he was 10 years younger back then. He said he focus was on slams, and considering how complicated the Olympics are gonna be this year, he should do just that: focus on slams. I can envision him expending a lot of energy here and burning out by US Open time.2011 run started with winning DC for Serbia.
Playing for Serbia means a lot to him and that should be enough without any discussion.

Tennis wise maybe, but winning gold has a great national significance in almost every country, especially in small countries like Serbia. Not just gold, but winning any medal.
I guess based on your logic the AO also has zero historical significance as most players skipped it before the 90's. So it's clearly nowhere near RG, W and USO.
