And he still tried his best to win and won a DC for his country and most importantly never demanded appearance money in his home tournament, let alone an outrages amount

So Djokovic lives in Monte Carlo which is tax free, to avoid paying taxes to his own country.

Yes, Very Patriotic this Djoker

I don't get it. As a Nole fan, I read a lot about him. He has so much money ... guys it's not about taxes. He's given millions of $$$ to his country through his humanitarian work etc. He, simply can not have a normal life in Serbia. He can't go to a store, or walk down the street by himself without everyone going absolutely crazy. Zero privacy. so all of this BS about taxes is just getting old and stupid.

As far as I know, Serbia did nothing to help him out when he was struggling as a young player. His family risked everything they had to make sure Nole could make it (they were selling their family gold, borrowing money at some ridiculous interest rates just to make sure Nole could train and move forward). So, please stop with all of this patriotic melodrama. Nobody owns anything to anybody (Fed included). I'm not sure if Switzerland did anything for Fed, but he is coming from a wealthy family ...

I don't think that Fed is any less or more patriotic than Nole. Some of you guys just love drama plus you love to judge.

Why would he, he doesn`t make that money in Serbia; so he is not in moral obligation do pay taxes here. If he had earned them here, that would be different.

Fed bragged about dominating tennis, including last year.
He degrades Djokovic in interviews.
Djoker has every right to spend as much money as he wants as long as he doesn't insult anyone and demand millions of dollars just to appear at certain exhibitions & tourneys, & receive praise for having intimidated opponents kissing him, the "best player ever"!

frauderer cried for his country when hewitt destroyed his choking ass from 2 sets down

maybe he cared at that point. but it's easy to care when you aren't yet surrounded by smug idolisers and fake, money earned love

after that, the arrogant swiss falsely claimed he was 'proud' to play for his country

he even patronised fat roddick, who wept tears of joy at possibly being on the same level as his faux idol at something, anything...

unfortunately for fraud, real davis cup players like djokovic and nadal won slams at the same time as winning davis cup

proving his pitiful excuses transparent

when finally relented and played, he demanded grass courts, whined about clay, refused flags and blamed his team mates for his losses

frauderer is certainly patriotic, but not for switzerland

Isn't this the home tournament where Fed was reportedly getting paid half the appearance money that either Murray or Djokovic (or was it both?) were being paid?

Yeah, that must be really tough. I can't imagine the Serbs are as laid-back about such things as the Swiss are.

Not sure that "wealthy" is a very accurate description? His dad was something at Ciba-Geigy, I think - clearly I should have paid more attention when I was reading the biog. I mean, obviously richer than Nadal's or Djokovic's family, but ...

Much better. Concision is the key.

The first part, I agree. The second...well, you're wrong, obviously. But you already know that.
