All I can say is, my best wishes to all affected people in Serbia and Bosnia.
Hey Alex, long time no see. Thx for the wishes and I don't feel a bit surprised that western media doesn't cover our situation.


Besides, Mr.Oracle and others who don't believe me. Alex and I go way back so go ahead and ask him where I'm from.

I am in a similar place as you. Did not have a clue about this until I read about it here. Can't believe how focused on other BS the Western media is sometimes.

It's impossible for his foundation to support this relief without him being in the public eye. Are you people really this obtuse?
How can his foundation not support relief without him being in the public eye again? If you mean he can't get donations from outside Serbia, maybe yes, otherwise your claim makes 0 sense.

About Lugburz, I've seen and read enough from him to judge what kind of a person he is. Certainly not one to take things he writes lightly.

I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST DJOKOVIC if that's what you as a fanboy needed to hear because my rant wasn't about him but the people and the media above all, how they see him as a god. It's insane. These people didn't even know what tennis was before he ranked highly. It's the sense of false pride.

And the whole picture thing, you gotta insane if you think I'd post anything about our situation on a freaking MTF.
That's the problem of these new generation kids. They feel like they need to post their life on the internet.
Now I need to catch some sleep and don't feel like I'm judging Djokovic for anything, he's doing his job. He is playing tennis.
I don't understand why you think the people of Serbia shouldn't view Novak as anything but an incredible ambassador for their country?

TBH I actually think he's a worse tennis player for being involved in all of these organizations, charities etc. - he could be using that time to sleep, eat and breathe tennis.

Where did I say this exactly? Why do you feel the need to put words in my mouth? I never said that.
I said I donated numerous clothes and many stuff/food and that they told us that volunteers are NO LONGER NEEDED.(Because it got too crowded)

I also said that I'm going tomorrow to see if there will be something for me to help. I thought it was pretty clear.

OK I think it's time to let it go as my simple rant about our people and the media regarding Djokovic has gone way out of hand.

The situation in our country is no laughing matter, so that's why, MR.Oracle you will not see me trolling or posting nonsenses.

Djokovic is indeed a great ambassador for our country and I respect that dearly. What you guys didn't understand is those people that regard him as a god while they don't even follow tennis or even his matches. Trust me Iam witnessing that too often. Even some of my friends.
Since he is playing tennis match, there's no need for commentators or anyone to pin the current situation to his match.
He's done enough writing on cam 'Support Serbia' and I'm glad he did it because as you see lot of western media are deliberately neglecting our situation. Which isn't the 1st time, but that's another topic, nvm.

I feel like we already spammed this thread too much with kinda off topic stuff, so I'm sorry about that. But a good thing about it, is that some people here learned about the situation this way.

I can see you're an idealist but I have trouble understanding how you draw certain conclusions. For instance, why be indignant that someone respects Novak for his accomplishments while not having a deep interest in tennis? I for one respect and admire Nikola Tesla (one of the greatest scientists in history) but have no direct interest in things electric. In the same way, Nole's benefited his country in many ways and people respond to that.

Mind if I ask why you don't have a Serbian flag? Is it too pretentious? Are you an ethnic minority or a Serb? I did a swap a while ago for certain reasons but it's going back to the canadian flag soon.

Nope, he's actually much better on hard (.704 win percentage career) than clay (.574), which is another reason why his play here is so promising for what it could mean later in the season. Although I do think he's definitely improving on clay. He's much better on it than grass for example.

I sure hope he has a better grass season than his horrendous 1-3 performance last year.

He was in a really bad state of mind last year after getting rid of Galo Blanco. Those losses against Monfils, Dodig, and Sijsling were all about as bad as he can play. I'm sure he'll be better than that this year, but he's never been able to deal with that surface well. You'd think with his serve alone, though, that he'd still be able to win his fair share of matches.

How come that you have time to post here, while your country is flooded, only to say how Novaks patriotism is questionable,oh wait, you trying to help here on powerful internet community like this and people seems to really care here what is happening in your country but your countryman doesn't.
