Srdjan Djokovic must be one of the happiest people alive today. How can’t he be, when his son pulls off one of the greatest victories in the history of tennis considering the emotional aspects of the Australian Open 2023 for the Serbian and his family? The final against the Greek third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas was yet another Novak Djokovic show in Melbourne. The final score was 6-3, 7-6(7-4), 7-6(7-5).

Srdjan watched the match from a hotel room in Melbourne. The video of him dancing to a famous singer Dobrivoj Topalović‘s song “We Mowed the Hay” and Srdjan singing “Mow dad, I mow...” by raising his three fingers has now gone viral. He himself was in a controversy last week for posing with “Russian fans“. Also keeping the deportation saga in mind, the celebrations must be big in Novak Djokovic camp.

Novak Djokovic’s father had the green signal to attend the match in the player’s box but he decided to watch it from the hotel room due to the controversies that popped up around the “Russain” picture. Even Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley gave the statement about the same before the final, “It’s his decision, we are going to let it be his decision and ultimately, he has got to make that call. He didn’t break any event policy. That’s really important because what’s been written about what he said hasn’t been correct and I think people are backtracking from that.” (Source: Kurir, translated via google)
