Tokyo Olympics: Is Novak Djokovic looking to compete in gymnastics? His latest pictures prove so
Novak Djokovic of Serbia is the reigning world number one in ATP Singles, while he is also the top seed in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics. Although he is off to a winning start, he might be contemplating competing in gymnastics, too, as per his latest pictures.
Serbia's Novak Djokovic, the reigning world number one in ATP Singles, is the biggest draw in the men's tennis of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He is off to a winning start in the competition and is a favourite for the gold medal going forward.
However, it seems like tennis might not be the only sport he excels in. In a recent set of pictures shared by him, Djokovic performed the splits during a workout session and the Belgium team.
Consequently, it seemed like he could be a contender even in the gymnastics team for Serbia. He captioned the post, "Working on my splits with @teambelgium gymnastics ;) 🇧🇪🇷🇸🙌🏼".
Djokovic's split performance should not come as a surprise. He is one of the most physical players in modern-day tennis, as he stretches out to the fullest while playing his shots.
Djokovic won his opening clash of the Games against Hugo Dellien of Bolivia in straight sets (6-2, 6-2). He would take on Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany on Monday in the next round.
Djokovic is on the bid for his maiden Olympic singles gold. Winning the same would allow him a chance at becoming the first male player to complete the Calendar Golden Slam, provided he wins the upcoming US Open Grand Slam next month.
