Former tennis world number one, Novak Djokovic, is set to compete at the Summer Olympics in Paris, as confirmed by the Serbian Olympic Committee on Tuesday. The committee announced on their website that both Djokovic and Dusan Lajovic have met the ATP ranking requirements and will participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics. Djokovic has not yet publicly acknowledged this announcement. Earlier in June, the 24-time Grand Slam champion withdrew from the Roland Garros quarterfinal against Casper Ruud due to a torn medial meniscus in his right knee. Two weeks prior, Djokovic had confirmed a successful knee operation but did not specify a return timeline. Djokovic has consistently emphasized the importance of the Olympics, aiming for a singles gold medal. Last October, he identified winning Olympic gold as a major goal, a sentiment he reiterated before this year's clay tournaments. 'The Paris Olympics are very significant. The Olympics have always been a priority for me,' Djokovic stated in April. He has participated in four Olympic tournaments, earning a bronze in Beijing 2008, and narrowly missing additional medals in subsequent Games. Following his early exit from Roland Garros, Djokovic has dropped to third in the ATP rankings.
