Re: Novak News!!

The pronunciation of "Djok" is close to 德 in Chinese. 小 also means young in Chinese and usually used as a term of endearment when addressing a person. Mainly, Nole's name in Chinese is so complicated and difficult to say so the media use only 小德 instead of 德约科维奇 which is a really mouth full for all Chinese.
