Simone Biles isn't the only athlete struggling with mental health at the Tokyo Olympics. Tennis champion Novak Djokovic lost his bronze medal singles match in stunning fashion. He threw a tantrum, then quit on his mixed-doubles partner. They were schedule to play for the bronze the next day.In his losing match, Novak smashed one tennis racket and tossed another far into the empty stands. Novak departed Tokyo complaining (quote) “I just didn't deliver. My level of tennis dropped due to exhaustion — mentally and physically.”People think Novak might have been talking about Simone's withdrawal when he said last week (quote) “Pressure is a privilege. If you aim to be at the top of the game, you better learn how to deal with pressure. How to cope with those moments, all the expectations.”Yet, seemingly forgetting his own words after a poor performance on the tennis court, Novak bolted from the Olympics and left his doubles partner in the lurch.
