Novak Djokovic confirmed for Paris Olympics

Novak Djokovic will compete at this year's Olympic Games in Paris, the Olympic Committee of Serbia announced.

The 24-time Grand Slam winner will be attending his fifth Olympics since his first in 2008 when he won a bronze medal.

Djokovic, 37, had knee surgery last month after he was forced to pull out of the French Open with an injury suffered in a fourth-round win that cast doubt over his chances of playing at Wimbledon and at the Paris Games.

World No. 3 Djokovic will look to end his title drought in 2024 after winning three out of the four Grand Slams last year as he chases an elusive Olympic gold medal at the Paris Games in which Spain's Rafael Nadal will also compete.

Dusan Lajovic, ranked 56th, will also play for Serbia in the July 27-Aug. 4 Olympic tournament at Roland Garros.
