“I don’t know, I have no idea. Now I, uh … don’t know what to say,” Djokovic said. After that, the tennis player left the mixed zone, almost bursting into tears in front of journalists.

On Saturday, July 31st, Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta bounced back from his disappointing semifinal defeat by upsetting Djokovic (6-4, 6-7(6), 6-3) to claim the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
