Olympics - Djokovic's Dream Dies

There will be no Golden Slam for Novak Djokovic in 2021 after he was stunned by Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals in Tokyo. What on earth happened to him when he was leading by a set and a break? And what could this defeat mean for his pursuit of the calendar Grand Slam in New York? 

Elsewhere, Catherine, David and Matt discuss Karen Khachanov being guaranteed a medal and what it means for his career, a deserved gold for Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic over their Croatian compatriots, a second defeat of the day for Djokovic in mixed doubles, and tomorrow’s schedule which includes the gold medal match between Marketa Vondrousova and Belinda Bencic. 

The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts. It is produced weekly year-round, and daily during the Grand Slam tournaments. It is crowdfunded by listeners each December.
