The father of World No. 2 Novak Djokovic says his son is a nationalist, like himself and like most people in this country, and will always be with Kosovo. Srdjan Djokovic spoke to TV Prva about the fact that Djokovic along with his Serbian team mates, celebrated winning the ATP Cup in Sydney with the songs "March on the Drina" and "Vidovdan."
The ambassador of so-called Kosovo in Bulgaria, Edon Kahn, called out the Serbian tennis team for singing a song about Kosovo during the ATP Cup earlier this week, Srdjan commented, "Sir, whoever you are, and wherever you're from, Novak is a nationalist, of course, like me and most people in his country.
That's not bad, we love our country. Whereas you entered our country and you know that it is holy land for us, just like Jerusalem is for the Jews. We will always be with our country and with our Kosovo and our people down there, do not think that anything will change in 10, 20, 100 or 1,000 years.
Kosovo will always be the heart of Serbia, as it is now, so it will be forever. That's all I wanted to say." Kahn commented on Twitter, “After the military march song, they continued with Kosovo …! You may be the ATP winner, but still deep down you remain primitive, backward and ordinary Balkan nationalists and chauvinists!
It is no accident that Novak Djokovic is the least liked and loved tennis champion in history." Serbian tennis players won the ATP Cup in Australia last weekend, celebrating their victory by singing “March on Drina” and “Vidovden”.
