The Olympics has always been important to the top players and almost every great has talked about how important/special it is, including Novak. He is only saying this because Novak hasn’t won it.You play Olympics for your country and win gold medal. That is the significance, representing your country.
Of course, there is nothing to gain if one has brain like countless journeymen who prefer to play Mickey Mouse tournaments instead of Olympics
Plus Djokovic has cried twice on the court after Olympic losses, so nothing hurts him more than losing the Olympics.Relatively tough draw for Novak given how many withdraws there were from the Olympics. Definitely he will need to bring a solid level if he wants to win. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing what happens. I don't mind if he ends up losing, but we have here a real good chance to win this unique event. It would be another feather in the cap for Djokovic.
Has anyone found a PDF or another picture of the draw?
I don't like the way they show draws on the official site.
