This month at the Cincinnati Open on the ATP Tour, world No. 2 Novak Djokovic will make a rare appearance in doubles play. The Serbian tennis superstar will compete in both singles and doubles in the ATP Masters 1000 event in Cincinnati before the US Open. He just lost the Wimbledon final to Carlos Alcaraz.
In Doubles, Djokovic Plays With Nikola Cacic
Djokovic will form a doubles team with fellow Serbian player Nikola Cacic at the Cincinnati Open. Once in 2021 at the ATP Cup and again in 2021 at the Davis Cup, the pair played doubles three times.
In an Uncommon Display of Doubles
Djokovic has seldom played doubles and instead concentrated on his singles career. He and Jonathan Erlich won the Queen’s doubles championship in 2010. He has recently played in a doubles pair with Vasek Pospisil in Adelaide this year, and he was supposed to play with Erlich in Tel Aviv last year, but they backed out at the last minute.
Consequences You Might Face If You Play Doubles in Cincinnati
Djokovic’s choice to play doubles in Cincinnati may have far-reaching consequences, despite his focus on the forthcoming US Open. He may be training for the Davis Cup and the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
The Davis Cup and the Olympics
Djokovic is definitely going to be playing for Serbia at the Davis Cup later this year. Djokovic will be able to participate in the Paris 2024 Olympics if he plays in the Davis Cup tournament, which takes place soon after the US Open. Djokovic may help Serbia’s hopes in both events if he and Cacic create a doubles combo.
In Search of Olympic Glory
Djokovic has never won an Olympic gold medal in either the singles or doubles disciplines, although he did compete in mixed doubles for Serbia at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Djokovic plans to improve upon his previous Olympic performance at the 2024 Summer Games in Paris, which will be host at Roland-Garros, the site of this year’s French Open, which he won.
Inviting Expectations for Paris 2024
Novak Djokovic excitement for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris is obvious. The event will be held on clay in Roland-Garros, a surface he is quite comfortable with and has had a lot of success on in the past. Tennis competition at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris will get underway on July 27.
Fans are expecting for more outstanding moments from the gifted Serbian player as Djokovic juggles singles and doubles competitions at the Cincinnati Open and beyond.
