Obradovic: ´Novak Djokovic can win the Olympics, Federer is not a nationalist´

Federico Coppini - 23-07-2012 - View: 4574

Captain of Serbia´s Davis Cup team points out the differences between the Swiss and Serbian

Bogdan Obradovic, captain of the Serbian Davis Cup team, hopes to leave London with at least two medals (one in singles and a double) and obviously can not refrain from offering an opinion about the best player from Serbia, Novak Djokovic:

"These Olympics are very important for him. We know how much he loves his country and from the start of the season Roland Garros and the Olympics were the two goals. If he had to choose between Wimbledon and the Olympic Games he certainly would have preferred to win the second event. Novak will try in every way to win the gold. He is in great shape and is mentally ready. "

Roger Federer is one of the most dangerous rivals amongst the high caliber of players but Obradovic believes that the Swiss cannot win the tournament:

"The Swiss are much more individualistic. I think Federer has never shared a lot of the compatriots’ team atmosphere. We (the Serbs) are more nationalist in such events and this gives us an extra boost. Federer when he plays the Olympics seems rather unmotivated so I do not think he'll be the winner. "
