Boris Becker on Novak Djokovic: ´We Are Not Friends, We Respect Each Other´

Tennis - Boris Becker surprises saying how Novak Djokovic and he respect one another, but they are not friends indeed

Novak Djokovic and Boris Becker haven't always been close. Their relationship - Boris became Novak's coach at the beginning of the season co-coaching the Serb with Marian Vajda - went through some ups and downs, before settling for the better once Novak won his second Wimbledon title last July. Boris was also seen attending Novak's wedding (check the pictures here).

Despite things couldn't go better for the World No.1, Boris took some time to explain how a good working relationship with Novak is growing, but it is still to early to define it a friendship.

"We are two different people and it took time to start understanding one another" revealed Boris, "but we always had a great amount of respect for each other. I take him very seriously and I like to think that he does the same with me and enjoys it. Together we have fun, and I am getting closer to the other members of his family. A friendship? Well, let's say that Novak is not the person I would want to take with me on a weekend in Ibiza".
