Did you see Novak talking to his box throughout the first two sets too? He was looking at them constantly, gesturing etc. Neither of them have a leg to stand on on coaching.

And even so, just not classy for a father to give this type of interview with the match ongoing. Let Novak bring it up himself if it's an issue.

on one hand, djokovic´s family talks too much, and i´m quite certain djokovic is aware of that.
on the other, yeah toni was.
and djokovic is nowhere near goat yet, but i suppose you cannot expect a parent to give an unbiased opinion

Everyone knows Nadal, his family and his coach are a bunch of cheaters. He's been warned many times.

If you're actually surprised that Nole's father is talking him up, then you must be retarded.

I love that he says Novak could even be the best on clay in 4/5 years. Seriously Srdjan. Novak will NEVER reach Roger's achievements - get over it. And in 5 years Novak isn't going to be doing much on clay.

He's a great player and he acknowledges other great players - his parents however talk about "the child of God", destiny, the "best ever" etc. Neither the Nadals or the Federers have this kind of attitude - class there. Poor Novak.

With all the interruptions I'm sure Toni gave some indications to Rafa. She is his mother after all and Nole is his only way of living so this there isn't something to be consider.

It's just a tennis match. I really don't like the kind of tensions it brings among people. If you look at the boxes and the fans, it turns out to be something bigger than life, maybe I'm just too old for this shit.

Anyway, I'm working tomorrow and not going to watch the rest of the match... may the better player win

Dunno what sports you're watching but Novak will still be playing at a high level 4-5 years from now when Roger is retired and Rafa will have fallen off considerably. At this point he will be competing with guys like Raonic, Tomic, etc. so no, it's not crazy to think he could rack up many more slams if he stays healthy and hungry.

Players can talk to their box all they want. It's what's coming out of the player's box towards the player that counts. How can Nole be receiving coaching if he is the doing the talking?

And Novak can't complain about something he didn't see. He's busy playing a match, not spying on Nadal's box. He shouldn't say anything about it if he didn't notice it himself.

He knew what he was saying. He said Novak is the best and when asked even on clay he didn't say what any normal person would have said i.e. no, of course not, Nadal's greater on clay - he wouldn't even concede that. He's an idiot and a burden to Novak. Plain and simple.

His mother's interview is similarly painful - talking about Novak not finding his game etc. and now he's found himself so he should be fine. Compare that to Nadal & Fed's teams who talk about the strength of their opponents and applaud them too. Of course you back your family but you can be classy. They are not and really believe their "destiny" hype - matches aren't handed out by divine intervention like they seem to think.

For rational minded people in the world we need a Nadal victory - none of this "it was written by God" stuff.

Novak's parents have been idiots from the start and a pain to him - every interview they give it's foot in mouth time. No different here.

a) Did I say that Toni is nice and humble? Please post some examples of Toni being so blatantly rude or not acknowledging an opponent's good play etc. He's said in interviews that Djokovic was better to Nadal last year - hasn't been spouting off about Rafa being the best. Even now he doesn't say Rafa is the best. Still, irrelevant to Srdjan's comments.

b) Toni coaches - everyone knows it - they've even said it in Rafa's book. He's not the only one. A lot of players' coaches do. I wish Toni didn't but he does - up to the umpire to crack down. But it's not for Srdjan to complain to the media - Novak should say something to the umpire - there are ways to do things.

c) I'm not bitter - Nole is a nice guy and clearly Jelena is too which is why she seems to sit far away from the rest of the Novak clan. These comments just show Srdjan and crew in a bad light though.

Definitely a reason why a Novak win would be bad. I'd be happy for Novak but thinking of the size of Diljana and Srdjan's heads may be too much.

:stupid: not too long ago Rafatards were presenting their calculations and arguments how their guy will overtakes Fed GS count with ease and end up with 25+ Slams and win RG the next 10 years no suddenly it is not even clear if he wins another Slam and you give me this BS concerning Nole? doubt the guy gets past 10 Slams even if he wins this RG

OF COURSE they'd be saying "nole goat, nole greatest of all times in the history and the galaxy" !??:))

it's just so normal.. especially the temperament is so southern, ppl say things with their emotions on fire.. they cant play cool and phlegmatic.

yes, NOLE IS THE GOAT OF THE GOATS :)

I don't like him either not because of his cocky statements about his son but for his boss like behavior here in Serbia...

Please, tell me:

which Toni motion signals for which - serve wide, serve on the T, body serve, "play on his backhand", etc.
I am really curious to know. Oh, and please, let me know how YOU and the rest of the people claiming Toni is coaching know that.

:lol: give the guy a break. He barely speaks English. He's the best ever for him.

I've learned so far that this casual audio interviews are always a pure gem. He shouldn't have said that about coaching. That's a fact but it's not his job to say that publicly. As far as I know, these 2 have a good relationship and that exhibition is still scheduled so no need for stuff like this.

Read Rafa's book. The constant coaching is admitted by Rafa. Rafa professes not to like the coaching but it has bailed him out many times. Toni will signal move up or move back most often.

I also find it annoying much like you but no one probably finds it more annoying than Novak.

This generation of tennis dominance has been headlined by many things but mostly how respectable and commendable these top 3 guys have been on and off the court (with the exception of Novak's behavior on court a few years ago and some harshly blunt press conferences that Roger has had). Srdjan is doing nothing but giving himself and his son a black eye but truth be told I like it.

About 19 months ago Roger and Rafa traveled together on Fed's private jet to play two charitable events in Spain and Switzerland. The charity part of it is great, but theres something weird and uncomfortable about the two greatest players of our generation being so "buddy buddy"

I don't mind it after their careers are over but when you're playing you should want to destroy the guy who's your biggest competitor. They'll say they're out for blood when on court, but its tough to believe they're full fledged in the right place mentally.

Maybe these claims will spicen up the rivalary between the two.

Personally, I don’t’ think Srdjan should have said what he did, but that’s not the first time someone has made a stupid statement.

BUT that said, to accuse Srdjan of being a opiate addict is a very serious things. You’ve been around opiate addicts? I’ve worked with all kinds of addicts — alcohol, meth, cocaine, opiates, benzos. I don’t see it. Of course, it’s possible because there are all sorts of upstanding people who have addictions without anyone knowing, but to say that constant "facial gestures” ( by which I assume you mean facial expressions) are a sign of opiate addiction is ridiculous.

Anyway, families take too much criticism for their behavior in the players box. I would be a maniac if I had a child playing. I don’t’ understand people who can sit there with nearly no expression watching their loved one play.

Agreed. Some MTFers need to check out a little league or ice hockey game if they want to see noisy, obnoxious families!

95% of the time Novak's parents are just sitting there, expressionless, doing nothing, as the media insists they do. Meanwhile Rafa was angrily throwing tennis balls and balling out the referee for not stopping the match, etc. Talk about uptight. But if Nole had acted like that you would never hear the end of it on MTF or in the MSM.

Djokovic's parents have a TON OF CLASS more than most of the parents of posters here. You know why? Because his parents believed in Novak's DREAM.

Again, your points have no connection whatsoever. What does acting ridiculous during the final of a grand slam have to do with helping a kid pursue a dream? You think Djokovic's parents are the only people to make sacrifices?

Someone stated that Srdjan borrowed money from loan sharks to get Nole lessons. If true, thats very admirable. I'm sure he's reaped the dividends of it. Its also true that Nadal and Federer's parents didnt have to make those same sacrifices but do you think they taught themselves how to play?

Acting like a buffoon on a tennis court isn't a common practice. Have you seen how Robert and Lynette Federer act when they're present during their sons match? What about Ana Maria and Sebastiaan Nadal? You probably don't even know what Robert Federer looks like because he draws zero attention to himself. He realizes this is about his son and not him. He realizes its selfish and stupid to draw attention away from your kid when he's in his few precious years on the biggest stage.

What? you want me to quote the whole book? All the book talks about how horrible Toni was to him. Go read it. I think Rafa wrote the book so he didn't need to see a shrink. :lol:

Think he wrote it so he could use the profits to pay for the shrink :lol:

You are acting stupid or you simply do not understand. It IS family thing when it comes to Novak. Srdjan believed in his son even when it was really hard for the family to support his further progress. Whole family made sacrifice so Novak could afford his 6h daily training. I guess u just don't understand that probably cause u live in a rich country named USA. And cultural difference is very clear:

classy in the West = snobbish in the East
Acting like a buffon in the West = cheerful, happy people in the East

I do not want to generalize just stating some cultural differences between Slavic/southern and west/north nations.

Rafa clearly loves his uncle. It brought a tear to my eye to see him jump into Toni’s arms.

Rafa also has a loving father who he also loves and admires. You know that too if you read the book.

Agree about the last part, didn't say anything about his father (i was referring to Nole's father). The first part... I'm not saying there is no love, of course there is, but their relationship is very tense and has dented Rafa's confidence in general big time. I didn't find that very normal. To each their own opinions.

I didn't think there was anything wrong with what Srdjan said. I always enjoy hearing what people honestly think and feel.

BUT, if what they're saying publicly to the press is drawing unwanted attention away from his game, they should cut it out or at least be discreet about it. Novak appears to be very classy and even though I'm a Fed fan, I sometimes wish he could be as gracious in defeat as Novak. I can't imagine Novak would want to do damage control to appease the sponsors, fans, etc. each time his dad gets into that zone.

I don't have any idea if Nole disapproves or not of his parents behavior, but I don't see him standing up to them. You gotta accept your parents how they are and love them and respect them even if they're annoying to you. That's what he does. And for the record, no, I don't think his parents are annoying. They're a very loving and close family.

you acting like tony soprano at your 6 year olds teeball game is a little different than the father of the world #1 acting beligerently in the front row of a grand slam final.

tennis is a gentleman's sport, its not an NFL game atomosphere, but regardless what does a paying fan acting a fool have to do with Srdjan doing the same?

I asked you this question yesterday and I noticed you did not answer - WHEN WAS SRDJAN `ACTING BELLIGERENT' AT ROLAND GARROS????

Or was that just a LIE?

Here is Srdjan's interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7CMB0w6Bfc

He did NOT say it was Uncle Tony coaching but specifically said Rafa was being `coached from the box'.

When the commentator asked Srdjan - `Uncle Tony you mean'?

Srdjan responded - `I don't know'. So he did not personally accuse Tony of coaching.

As for Novak being the `best in history' - Srdjan's English is so broken it's difficult to tell exactly what he said, but it comes across more like a proud father bragging over his son.

However Srdjan did admit that Novak is NOT the best player on clay - `Maybe in 4 or 5 years' was his response.

The whole interview had been exaggerated way out of proportion.

Thanks for putting things in perspective Sansishan. :yeah:

It amuses me to no end these posters on a high horse who think they can criticize other people's behavior while in fact they are probably acting the same or worse in their lives. Pathetic if you ask me.

Actually it doesn't matter what novak's father said. Hell my dad probably thinks I am the best ever tennis player :) Nobody can control their parents you know. So I don't know why novak fans get affected by what other people think about his dad's comments. Who cares? Scrutinize what Novak thinks and says a) coz that is what matters and b) he can speak very good english :)

guys, OK, even as a Nole fan I don't like his father (I'm not going to elaborate, it doesn't really matter). however, let's look at our own families. some of my family members are driving me absolutely crazy ... what do you do?

This. Roger should really learn from Novak's sportsmanship. How people are still whining about him being a 'faker' or being annoying is completely beyond me. I too am a Federer fan, but I am getting more and more annoyed with his snobbish attitude.

On topic: I'd say chalk this one up to mistranslation and/or cultural differences (even though I often find the Djokovic' box quite irritating)

Wouldn't it be boring if there was no Tony, if Noles father was very modest and Fed would always act super gracious?

Exactly Tom. Well said. Of course Federer's camp has been nothing but perfect and I like his dad quite a lot, haven't seen much of his family though. Don't know how her mum looks like. I also like Rafa's camp, though not particularly Uncle Toni after reading rafa's book; but his father and mum are great. So are the djokovics, specially the mother, Nole's favorite person. I don't know it must be because for me family is always first. Whatever.
