World no.1 Novak Djokovic won his 18th grand slam last month, defeating Russian Daniil Medvedev in the final at Melbourne. This was also Novak’s 9th Australian Open title.
Srdjan Djokovic, Novak’s father recently spoke about how the rules seem to be different for Federer/Nadal and Novak. He was talking about the disqualification incident in last year’s US Open. Novak Djokovic, the favorite to win the tournament, accidently hit a line judge and was disqualified after that.
“I do not support what happened. It was an accident, a woman was beaten. It happened to Federer, Nadal and others, but no one was disqualified like Novak. Not only do they not have respect for the best in the world, but the opposite,” said Srdjan Djokovic.
“I would like him to play for another 5-6 years so that the difference in the mutual score will be even bigger,” he spoke on Roger Federer.
