How good is Nole's german?

I read Djokovic has lived in Germany for a couple of years after moving out from Serbia when he was a kid.
I don't speak german hence my curiosity how good is he in this language?

Novak gave an interview in German to Swiss commentator Heinz Günthardt after the SF in Basel in 2009. Unfortunately the video isn't on youtube any more but he got asked about it in the press conference:

Here's an interview with Novak in Austria in 2008 where he talks in German:



By the way, there's a thread about multilingual players where you can maybe find some more informations regarding Novak's German

His german speaking skills are a little bit rusty, but he understands it quite well.
The interviewer in the Austria interview speaks in austrian dialect which is hard to understand if you are
not a native speaker, but he seems to have no problem with it.

which means overall his command of the German language is proficient enough.
