The loss comes less than 24 hours after Djokovic was beaten by Alexander Zverev of Germany in the semifinals.
That ended his bid for a Golden Slam.
“I told him that he’s the greatest of all time."

Djokovic also lost in the mixed doubles semifinals with partner Nina Stojanovic.
He then withdrew from the bronze medal match in mixed doubles citing a left shoulder injury.
