Real problem was not Olympics 2020 but Olympics 2016 and Olympics 2012 when he performed like an idiot then...Specially Olympics 2012..Those were the days when he used to donate Tournaments..2016 he was playing with 1 elbow..Those performance literally closed down his Olympics Window...

Novak lost to the best player in the tournament. Medvedev was on another level.
If Djokovic was tired, he was tired the entire tournament; he lost sets to players ranked outside top 100 and made so many uncharacteristic errors in every match.

We all expected Medvedev to bend over, but at the same time we saw Djokovic was not playing on a high level. But we're used to see him winning slams without playing his best tennis in recent years.
Basically this.

Without the Olympics match practice Djokovic would have lost to Zverev in the USO semis...
To suggest that Djokovic was tired at the USO because he played at the Olympics four weeks earlier is ludicrous.
Its really strange that the fanbase that didn’t like to hear “age excuses” when a 37-38 year old was outplaying him, makes excuses about being “tired“ when the player in question supposedly played through an “abdominal tear.”
 
He crashed and burned but what can you expect after a season like that at 34 years old. .. But who the hell thought he would tie it up at 20-20-20 back in January? . Hes got another 3-4 years to win 1-2 more slams. LOL... Unless Nadal can find new feet and legs and go on one last tear. I think Djoker will be fine.

Who cares if he didn't win a Golden slam? I mean its not like hes going to hit a REAL heavy decline for probably 2 more seasons. Djoker (if he continues to want to play) will be a top 2-3 favorite at every slam between now and probably 2024

He will win more slams and make Fedal look like second grade jabronis statiscally, that's for sure

Problem is this CYGS opportunity will never come again, this was his last opportunity and like @PilotPete said he got too greedy

Should have skipped those useless Olympics without crowds, what for did he go there halfway across the world?? To lose his Wimbledon momentum and to pile up angry memories ?? Total fail....he should have rested and should have come for Cinci .... Nd then USO.

Hi father who is his biggest supporter and the one who is observing him for 34 years told him to skip the event because he knew/had a premonition/had a bad feeling on what was gonna happen

Novak greedily did not listen....

I thought Djokovic was Ultron from 2011. When did he donate tournaments in 2012, 2016 & 2020?

He went there because he craves 2 of these more than anything, to match Rafa's Olympic success. One in singles and one in doubles.

Olympics (tennis) is useless and he is a fool.

Rafa and Murray collected some useless medals which nobody in the past cared about, these olympics medals for tennis have no legacy, they are just a shabby best of 3 sets tourney.....

2012 Olympics

In 2020 Djokovic was at the end of his tether that yet again the gold medal has eluded him.

He is a fool to do all this like a desperate clown....

That medal is worthless ...

Should just have focussed on Slams and created such a big gap between Federer and him that history would remember him as the GOAT

Nadal is already the 3rd wheel, so nothing to worry
