In recent times, not only Novak Djokovic it’s news. So is his father when making statements who lately, expresses himself in Serbian and European media in general, leaving his mark.
Without a filter, Srdjan already dared to affirm that “Nole is already the best of all time”, or also that it is Novak who “fights so that other players can better reach the end of the month” and slide on Roger’s personality Federer.
On this, the world’s number one himself, and who the most weeks was at the top, he replied to ESPNTenis.com. “I love my father. My father is the most supportive I had, especially in the early days. But obviously I can’t affect what he says. I mean, it is what it is,” he confessed with a smile.
What’s more, the only one to win all the Masters 1000 (In fact, he celebrated at least twice in each of them), after his victory against Jannik Sinner in Monte-Carlo, he said, in a press conference, to this medium: “Everyone thinks with their own head. I have to accept it and respect him. My father is a very, very passionate man. He protects me and loves me. I know he does it with the best and purest intentions. We may all say or do things that maybe other people will be offended by it or something like that”.
Finally, the one born in Belgrade 33 years ago completed: “I continue to support my father and whatever he is doing. We are family. Of course, I will stay by his side and protect him. I can’t always agree with everything he says“.
