Swiss Maestro Roger Federer was called ‘arrogant’ by Novak Djokovic’s mother as Andy Roddick landed in backing his former opponent and gropes that the comments are unfair to describe Federer.
Before this week, Djokovic’s mother told that God protected her son against Federer last year at the Wimbledon Championship Final and opposed Federer as ‘arrogant’.
“In a stadium where everyone was cheering on Roger Federer, we were just a handful of fans for Novak,” Dijana Djokovic said in a Serbian publication Sport Blic.
“It’s not nice that I’m annoyed by Federer or others at such moments. But it annoyed me because Federer is a bit arrogant, ” she added.
“It’s just unnecessary. I don’t know if we need to throw this around from the sidelines. I think it probably wouldn’t be one of my first 6000 words that I would use to describe Roger,” Roddick told Tennis Channel when asked about his views on the comments.
“Novak Djokovic is certainly has a real chance of being the best of all time” – Andy Roddick
However, Roddick also think that difference with Djokovic’s opinion on the different matter doesn’t decide anyone’s views on how great player Federer is.
“I think there have been some stories coming out of that camp that are maybe concerning at best,” he added.
And so on top of those was turning ‘poisonous drinking water in a glorious thing with our thoughts’. This is actually only the second or third most alarming thing that set out of that camp in the last couple of weeks,” he said
“It’s just hard cause when you disagree with someone’s stance on a personal level, you can still think that they’re really friendly and still enjoy seeing them. And that shouldn’t dictate your opinion on what they have accomplished on the court,” Roddick added.
“So what I think of his stances on big world issues that are going on right now and what he has accomplished on sport are two completely separate things for me and Novak has been unbelievable. He is certainly has a real chance of being the best of all time regardless of if I have to disagree with him on any certain issue,” he concluded.
