The Olympics is upon us! And that means tennis stars mingling and oogling with other sporting stars. Such was the case earlier today when Novak Djokovic met 22-time gold medallist Michael Phelps.

So do you think if given the chance they would career swap? And whose would you choose? Twenty-two medals with a few more to come in Rio, but for Phelps his career more than likely ends this month (he can go back to bongs fulltime?). Djokovic I guess could actually get to 22 Slams (not really equating those, but…) because he still has years and years left.
“Once in every four years you get to experience an incredible unity of all sports,” Djokovic said today. “10,000 people in the Village, and everyone’s working out, dining together ,so it’s truly something special and I always look forward to being part of it.
With a banged up Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer out and Stan Wawrinka with better things to do apparently, Djokovic and Andy Murray are the easy favorites to walk away with at least two of the three medals, the question is, which ones?
“It would be probably ranked as one of the highest, or the highest achievement of my career that I would have potentially,” said Djokovic of winning the gold. “But again, I’ve got to stay humble, I’ve got to take a very cautious mindset in preparation to this Olympic Games. I’ve had bronze from Beijing, in London I fell short, but again I always play with my heart and all I have when I play for my country.”
The Olympics draw comes out tomorrow, get ready!
