Djokovic’s Gold Medal Hopes Dashed, Loses To Zverev


Novak Djokovic’s hopes of winning a gold medal at the ongoing Tokyo Olympic Games came to an end on Friday after losing to Alexander Zverev in the men’s singles semi-finals.

The world number one collapsed from a set and a break ahead as German fourth seed Zverev won 1-6, 6-3, 6-1 to set up a Sunday final against Russian Karen Khachanov.

The 34-year-old Djokovic has never won the Olympic singles title.
