Djokovic's father: “Federer will be a great champion, but he's not a good man”

Srdjan Djokovic has made some statements in which he charges again against the foreign press and also against Roger Federer, about who wanted to review an episode that, possibly, has marked the relationship between the two tennis players throughout their careers.

In an interview on the Serbian TV show 'Ace at Eleven' K1, 'Nole's' father lashed out at foreign media and the treatment they give his son. “It is obvious that the foreign media do not have the best opinion of us and that we constantly annoy them. To tell you the truth, I don't want to be a part of their twisted world. I'm sorry you don't like Novak. I'm just telling the truth, what should I do? They defame so much and say so many disgusting things about him that it's unbelievable. My answers are much sharper compared to how they treat this great champion that they will never have in this world again. “

Srdjan Djokovic also wanted to highlight the qualities that his son Novak has inherited from him and his mother. “Novak brought out the best in me and my wife. From me he acquired courage and courage, and from his mother, calm and composure. When he comes across a wall, he stops and thinks, while I roll on my head until I pass out. “

Djokovic's father also harshly criticized Roger Federer, of whom he said that 15 years ago he attacked his son and of whom he said he is not a good man. “About 15 years ago he attacked my son when he was still young, when he was 18 or 19 years old. I knew someone was coming who would be better than him. I said then that he was a great champion, the best at that time, but as much as it may be. a great champion, Federer is not such a good man. “
