Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic spoke about his attitude to the selection for the Olympic Games.
“The letter has already been sent to the IOC, as we learned that the ITF will not change the selection rules for the Games. It was signed by 75% of tennis players from the Top 20 ATP rankings, and this means something.
As president of the players’ council, I must protect their rights , despite the fact that this opinion goes against the ITF. I do not agree with the selection criteria for the Games. There should be other selection opportunities for the Olympics, except for the “Davis Cup”.
There are many tennis players among us who disagree with his new format. Most players didn’t like the process because it’s fast. I like the “Davis Cup”, but there should be no connection between it and the Olympic Games, “- quotes Novak Tennis World.
