“I never saw anyone have such energy to fight for a medal for Serbia. It is contagious. After the match I came to (Djokovic). You know what he was doing? He was so miserable, he was cutting up his racquets with a saw,” News.com.au quoted Divac, as saying.

“That is not someone who doesn’t care about the result. His main goals were Roland Garros and the Olympic Games. He said, ‘Vlade, I’m sorry.’ I told him, ‘You don’t have to apologise for anything, you’re a champion and always will be’,” he added.

British tennis ace Andy Murray won the gold medal while Swiss star Roger Federer grabbed silver and Juan Martin Del Potro took home a bronze, the report said.
