World number one Novak Djokovic was reduced to tears after suffering a shock first round 7-6(4) 7-6(2) loss to Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro in the men's Olympic tennis tournament Sunday.After winning this year's Australian and French Open titles, Djokovic was the favorite to add Olympic gold to his 12 grand slam titles and Del Potro was as surprised as anyone to see the Serb go out.The 27-year-old Argentine crunched 29 forehand winners in comparison to just seven by Djokovic, who lost a bronze medal match to Del Porto at the London Olympics four years ago.Djokovic will be 33 by the time of the Tokyo 2020 Games meaning the Rio men's doubles could be his best hope of achieving Olympic success.
