SRĐANĐOKOVIĆ, the father of the world’s best tennis player NovakĐoković, as a guest of B92, recalled the illness he contracted several years ago.
“It’s very difficult. I have sepsis and I have been in balance for three weeks. I was transferred to Munich due to no treatment. Novak then participated in the final in London and dedicated the title to me. “It means a lot to me. When I saw and heard it,” Djokovic said.
He revealed that Novak was planning to abandon the top eight games in the world.
“He wants to be with me instead of going to the game. I told him that he must participate in the game to give him strength when Dad plays and wins.”
Srdjan added that he was disappointed by the Western media’s attitude towards Novak.
“Why did they behave like that? In the past 15 years, Novak has not lost a game, no congratulations, he has surpassed him. He may win Novak’s trophy as a 45-year-old. Federer has 15 but Novak does not.”
Novak started this year by winning the Australian Open. His father believed he could become the first tennis player to win four Grand Slams in a season.
“Yes, I believe he can also win the next three Grand Slams. I believe he will soon win the 21st Grand Slam championship, surpassing Federer and Nadal.”
