To defend his title, Andy Murray obviously has to pull out from the Rogers Cup in Toronto to train. In fact, Britain’s Davis Cup captain Leon Smith revealed that Murray got his focus on the upcoming Olympic matches.

Hence, he has to relax after the overwhelming events in Wimbledon 2016 and he has to pull himself together in body and in mind, Rio 2016 reported.

On the other hand, Novak Djokovic clearly hinted that he will return as a stronger one after his defeat against the American Sam Querrey. ESPN thought that he might be a bit distracted in the last major tournament due to hinted family concerns. But this should not be the full basis of his standing in Rio Olympics 2016.

According to the theories, he has higher opportunities to return a hundred percent focused on winning gold and earn Andy Murray’s Olympic title. All he needed is to get away from tennis for a while and regain his fullest motivation to win gold. That’s it.

The same source mentioned that his defeat became his powerful motivation for the tough battles ahead of him. His drive to defeat the Olympic 2012 holder is intense.

    If anyone has the incentive it is Djokovic who has never won an Olympic singles gold medal. He could win one just like he won his first French clay grand slam this year. Both Nadal and Murray have already won. Nadal can’t win this time. Federer is too old to win an Olympic gold medal. But Murray still can win. It would be nice if a youngster won, whoever it is. The odds are in favor of Djokovic winning the gold medal the way he has been dominating.
