He says "YEAH!" sometimes in a manly (and sexy) manner when he's pumped up. Does that count?

Actually, I don't know how the urban legend about Nole using "Ajde" came to be. Has ANYONE ever heard him using anything BUT "Dobar!" and "Tako je!" (the latter as of late)?

That "Ajde" is totally Ivanović/Janković thing, and as such doesn't belong to a men's tennis forum.

Fans crying "Ajde, Nole" is a completely different thing, which has nothing to do with the original question.

Therefore, the original poll option "Ajde" should be substituted by "Dobar!", and that's also the correct answer.

I have difficulty processing a post referring to Federer with "manly" and "sexy" in it.

This was mesmerizing - I cannot believe that I watched 2 mins of Ajde's with subtle variations in intonation and intensity Someone should make a music video out of this.

Ivanovic

Only good thing about WTA

I've never noticed Scandinavians using warcrys btw. Soderling is the only one, and his is more just a random yell than anything else

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker

How can he be your only source of happiness if you don't recognise how manly his sexy fistpumps and "YEAH!" are?

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

What are you talking about? Roger's mother tongue is Swiss German. He even extensively about being sent away to a French-speaking tennis academy as child in Switzerland and how hard that was to cope with.

He usually does it after a taxing bout of volleying in the warm up.
