Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic was upset in the men’s tennis semifinal by Germany’s Alexander Zverev.

The loss means that Djokovic won’t be able to complete a “golden slam” — winning all four major tournaments and an Olympic gold medal in a single year. Djokovic had won three majors already going into the Olympics.

Zverev, who is ranked fifth, cried after beating the top-ranked player in the world 1-6, 6-3, 6-1. Djokovic will play for the bronze medal instead.
