Day two of Rio Olympics turned out to be a dramatic day in Tennis, as leading contenders in the event were knocked out early.
While world No.1 Novak Djokovic was left in tears after being defeated 7-6 7-6 by Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro, women’s doubles event saw Serena and Venus Williams suffer a shocking defeat in the first round itself.
It is also turning out to be a weird experience for Del Potro, who had spent 40 minutes stuck in an elevator a day before.
Quickly recovering from the horrifying experience, Del Potro put up an amazing performance to register an impressive victory against the world number 1.
The Czech pairing of Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova defeated the top pair 6-4 6-2 in straight sets in a match that lasted 93 minutes.
