Quote:
SBN: Janko, a few weeks ago you posted a photo on Facebook, of you and Novak Djokovic. And I think you later took it down? Can you talk about that photo, how you staged it, what was going on, and why you took it down?

Janko Tipsarevic: That was...it was a bad joke, you know. We were really happy that we won Davis Cup. We were at dinner, and I think there was a plastic gun? And it was a bad and it was a stupid joke. Just, at that time it seemed funny, because the joke was about how dominant Novak is, that nothing can stop him this season, you know?

But as you said, the next day, I took it off Facebook and Twitter. But, as I heard later, it was all over the internet. And you know, people were blaming me, for you know, thinking that...I hate Rafa.

And then I called Novak and Rafa the next day, and spoke to them, and they were fine about it. They told me to be careful because with this social networking, people can get things like this in the wrong way.

I still blame myself, I think it was a bad, bad joke. But, anyway. You can make a bad story out of everything if you want to, you know? I apologize to anyone who thinks it was, like, offensive to anyone on tour. But, you know, the pictures were out the next day, and that's in the past.

So there you have it. An immediate apology that shifted into some mild excuse making.

Here's hoping Linda Tripp will someday leak the audio of Tipsarevic's call to Nadal, because that has gotta be gold.

Never complain and never explain!!!!

Speak softly and carry a big stick !

Hope Janko will be more careful from now onwards in his FB profile.

When this pic was first posted by Janko during Davis Cup, it was under the caption "Die Hard"(playstation game). Janko posted the pic again with the Rafa caption 3 days later when both were on holidays and not together so Nole has nothing to do with this whole disrespecting Rafa thing. Nole's certainly no saint but he's not responsible for this one...
I agree with what you're saying overall though, it was an unfortunate incident that hopefully won't happen again.

As Amber already pointed out, Novak had nothing to do with the caption, it was all Janko's idea and even Nole didnt know about it until it was posted. If you read his declarations carefully, Janko says he called BOTH Rafa and Nole to apologise to them because it had been his sole bad idea. I agree the joke was cringeworthy but Nole didnt take part on it. And about celebrating victory in a gentle manner i think Nole has done that all his life, he's never been short of exquisite.

Sorry my post came first, I just copy and pasted new when I was changing something instead of edit, in case people are wondering why the order's messed up

No I still honestly think Novak is the best(unbiased fan that I am ) ,ok he mightn't look his best atm (w/ that stupidly short hair he has all the time these days)

I think he strikes a very good balance between handsome but also cute, most guys are either one or the other or just not good-looking at all

I love these two pics

Re: Novak News!!

Rogers Cup: Novak Djokovic speaks (Video)

Appearing to be quite well rested and in good humor as well, new world number one Novak Djokovic met with the press in Montreal to do some pre-tournament coverage for the Rogers Cup.

Limited by time constraints to only a few questions, it was tough to get in-depth with the Serbian star. He did briefly touch upon life as the top player in the world and his outlook on the first big summer event leading up to the U.S. Open.

Djokovic sounded quite level-headed about his new status at the top of the rankings. When asked how it might change him he replied, “Well I try not to change anything in particular, I’ve tried to keep the things very simple the way I have practiced and the way I have approached my tennis career in general up to the moment where I was number one. And from this moment was the same. So, it is true that some things change. The world is maybe treating me differently but I treat myself and my team exactly the same.”

It’s obviously too soon to really say how his new status might affect him since he has yet to play any tournaments since reaching the pinnacle of the sport. It will be very interesting to watch how he handles himself now that there is a giant target painted to his back. Even though he has been ranked in the top-three for what seems like an eternity, there’s a different twist to being above everyone else.

The scrum got a bit of a laugh when Djokovic was asked if it was difficult to stay on top. The poor guy hasn’t even had a chance to defend any points since he took the pole position from Nadal.

“That is something that I will find out,” he said with a grin, “and hopefully that I can stay as long as I can. I will try to go the distance but it’s definitely not going to be easy.”

Djokovic did not reveal too many specifics when I asked him about his post-Wimbledon celebrations but did mention that he found the time to celebrate, “in the Serbian way.” What does this actually mean? For Djokovic it meant, “A lot of fun, a lot of dancing and things like that.”

After building so much momentum over the first six months of the season, Novak talked about how the five week post-Wimbledon break might affect his progression in a season that has seen him go a remarkable 48-1. He chose to focus on the positive in his answer instead of dwelling on how it might bring him back down to earth.

“Well look, you know, I think the break came at the right time for me and for most of the top players. We’ve had an exhausting six months of the year, especially myself. I’ve played so many matches and I was very successful, I cannot complain, you know, but right now I have recharged my batteries and I am ready for the upcoming couple of months.”

With a first round bye and the forecast calling for steady rain in Montreal for the next few days, it might not be until Wednesday before we see how the time off has treated Novak’s game. He opens against the winner of Nikolay Davydenko and a qualifier.

One last bit of Novak info is that he did reveal that he will be entered in the doubles draw with fellow Serb Janko Tipsarevic. There will not be a repeat of last year’s partnership with Nadal as their rivalry has truly risen to another level in 2011.

Apparently Nole's became a new Federer for her. I'll take it as a compliment.

Re: Novak News!!

Lovely pictures, amber! Thank you very much!

And C-Note just makes me laugh, she's such a hater that it gets boring. She fancies herself witty, too.

I agree with shuhrat, I take her Nole hate as a compliment!
