According to “Blic,” Milorad Dodik commented that the Djokovics are a bit difficult to handle and that their behavior can be emotionally taxing on the people around them. He went on to describe them as somewhat unpredictable and suggested that those who associate with them can be negatively impacted.

Although, I can tell you, these Djokovics are a little hard on the motherfucker, ugh… Our people experience it emotionally, and when you get into work aww.. Quite a gypsy, I can tell you… Those associates of his, lose even more.. “ Dodik said.
