Novak Djokovic revealed that he will take part in the Tokyo Olympics only if fans are allowed to attend. The Tokyo Olympics will be held between July 23 and August 8. Visitors from out of the country have already been banned from attending the Games. The organizers are yet to decide whether local fans will be in attendance. Djokovic has said that he might reconsider his participation in case fans aren’t allowed back.
“I’m planning to play Olympic Games for now,” Novak Djokovic said about his participation in the Tokyo Olympics. “As I heard, there’s going to be some crowd, local crowd from Japan only. If they change something and there’s not going to be any crowd, then I’ll consider if I want to go or not. Right now I am planning to go, and I’m very excited about that.”
Roger Federer who is yet to win a gold medal has not made up his mind yet and is waiting to see further developments. Federer said he wished things were better in the world, then there would be no debate. He admitted if that was the case playing in the Olympics wouldn’t be up for debate.
“My wish and hope and dream is that I can play it. But it needs to make sense for me, my team, my family, my country. I’m still waiting to see how things are going to develop in the next couple of weeks and months.” Federer said.
World Number 2, Daniel Medvedev is excited about playing for his first Olympic Games. He was all praise for the Argentina contingent and is looking forward to it. He is hoping to play some doubles and mixed doubles as well. He admitted that with COVID, the games are not going to be the same as other times.
