Interviewed by local media in Serbia, Srdjan talked about his son Novak Djokovic, a recent winner of the 18th Slam at the Australian Open 2021, once again attacking his rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. He said: "Among the big three favorites, Novak is always alone against the others.
He not only fights for himself, but also to make it easier for other players to make it to the end of the month. He has excellent manners, you can see how he greets his opponents, how he behaves as a guest, when he loses he always gives his hand and congratulates his rival.
What other athlete does this? Yet he has rarely received a Fair Play award, while Roger Federer has at least fifteen. Western media focused only on Federer and Rafael Nadal and neglected Novak, it was the only way to stop him.
But then it turned out that there is no way to stop him, he is unparalleled, we must surrender to the evidence and accept that he is the best in the world. He It seems that he always does the opposite of what they say, but he has never given anyone a reason to be treated like this, even if the reality is different.
Srdjan Djokovic attacks again Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal
The normal thing would be that everyone loved him, do you know why he plays better in China? There he feels true love, something that he does not experience in many places in the West.
Here they think that only they exist, but in reality they are just one fifth of the planet. In China, India, Russia, Brazil or Africa it's different, there Novak is treated as if he were a God. 97% of the population feels like one of the family.
Then there is the 3% made up of frustrated people who accuse him of being cosmopolitan, of being too pro-Western. Nole extended her grandfather's life thanks to his matches. He lived in Banja Luka and was already very ill, but he never missed a game of his nephew, he was always impatient when he played Novak and this made him live longer.
In the worst moment of the Serbian people, God sent Novak to prove that we are a normal people, not a group of savage murderers. In a year and a half Nole will be the best, according to the statistics. The young people on the way are great: Medvedev, Rublev, Tsitsipas and Zverev.
However, they will have to wait for Federer, Nadal and Djokovic to hit the racket before they become champions. Most of them come from Russia, so there is no longer just the Western world, the Chinese have also started playing tennis.
Westerners must understand that we also know something about life, we know how to hit the ball. They believed that all this would never change, but Novak changed everything."
