Tennis star Novak Djokovic has said he will be Serbia’s flag-bearer at this summer’s Olympic Games in London, Beta news agency reported yesterday.

“We are all very excited about the Olympic games in London, such a magnificent sporting event, and it goes without saying what a great honor it is for me to carry the flag for Serbia,” Djokovic told the agency.
Among the hundred athletes in the Serbian delegation, the world tennis number one is one of Belgrade’s main hopes for an Olympic medal. Djokovic, the Wimbledon and US and Australian Open champion, is currently in Paris where on June 5 he reached the French Open semifinals.

Djokovic beat French Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in five sets to set up a semifinal meeting with Roger Federer, who also needed five sets to overcome Juan Martin Del Potro.

The Serbian player is battling to become the first player in 43 years to hold all Grand Slams.
