I've always liked his impersonations, so I don't understand the flak he drew over them.

Q. Novak obviously has a lot of charisma off the court. He sort of won over the fans, and here in the media room he's very funny and quick wit. What do the players think of him? What's his reputation among the players on tour? What do you think of his personality?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, we don't talk too much about different players.

Q. What do you think of his personality?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, in the locker room he's always very respectful toward me, you know. He's pretty quiet. I only hear stuff. I didn't see the stuff he did on court the other day. I didn't see what apparently he did in the locker room either.

For me, these things, you know, I only hear. But people don't really talk about it. I know some guys weren't happy. I know some guys might think it's funny.

He's walking a tightrope, for sure. If fans like it, it's good for tennis, to be honest. It's good to have a character like him out there, there's no doubt.

And that's offensive how? Haters grasping at straws as usual.

Or delusion. You have quite a lot of the latter, mind you .

This is all you need as proof as well. Gagsquet has sworn he'd try to piss off RF fans as much as possible and even he's acknowledging you're trying to stir shizz.

That clip is another evidence that Djokovic has far more interesting personality than Federer.

I think Novak Djokovic tries too hard to be funny, tries too hard to be liked. It doesn't come effortlessly to him and to me seems very forced, unlike many charismatic players in times gone by and even currently.

Fed is so dull like 99% of his fans. Just look around here.
He has no life out of tennis same like his fans who have no life out of this forum. Simple as that.Dull support dull, law of nature.

Not everyone can Safin, Ivanisevic, or Nastase.
