Novak Djokovic having lunch with a Srebrenica massacre soldier

Once again world number one and world tennis legend Novak Djokovic gets involved in extra tennis events. It was already happened with the Adria Tour, last year, and with the statements of his parents, but also with other moments.

Already in the past the Serbian champion has been criticized for attitudes and statements out of the ordinary but this time Nole seems to have made it really big. The tennis player, on vacation after the defeat in the final at the US Open and the consequent farewell to the Calendar Grand Slam, was seen at the table with former commander Milan Jolovic, protagonist of the Srebenica Genocide, massacre of thousands of Bosnian Muslims, and episode which made the history of that country negatively in 1995.

The photos of this lunch quickly went viral on social media and criticism for this situation has rained all over the world. Until now Nole has refused to comment on any details regarding this lunch.

Who is Milan Jolovic and Djokovic's 2021

Jolovic was the commander of the Drina Wolves, the so-called Wolves of Drina and was a very important character in this story as he saved the life of Mladic, the general who led the massacre and who was then relegated to life in prison for genocide and war crimes.

A situation certainly at the level of an unedifying image for the Serbian champion who in the past was exposed to criticism for the direct Instagram with his friend and little appreciated guru Chervin Jafarieh, a character considered excessive due to his use of particular theories.

A slightly difficult moment for Nole back from two big disappointments in the tennis court: after having literally dominated 2021 Djokovic lost the chance to win an Olympic medal by first losing the chance to reach gold against Alexander Zverev and then also missing the chance with the bronze by falling against the Spanish Pablo Carreno Busta.

At the US Open, however, the biggest disappointment came with the defeat in the final against the Russian Daniil Medvedev, winner with a triple 6-4 that thwarted the dreams of the Grand Slam in the same year as Nole.
