Nobody talks about it, nobody in the media knows about it but it was very interesting to say the least. Roddick was one scary mofo. Djokovic surely suffered long term effects by being physically and verbally humiliated. Who knows how many majors it cost him? I'd say a few.

1) Any player pissed off with Djokovic 'imitating' them on court is pathetically insecure.
2) Fights will happen all the time in the locker room.
3) This is probably nonsense.

Fights rarely happen but there have been a few moments. Bob Hewitt getting punched. John McEnroe getting punched by Gaudio. Gildemeister almost brawling with Sundstrom after he blew a two set and third set lead to lose in 5 because the Swede was over celebrating in the locker room. It's rare but things do erupt on rare occasions. Murphy Jensen supposedly threatening Rios who backed down. Most of the fans and media never hear about it though. It's an interesting aspect of tennis. Oh, McEnroe and Scott Davis almost threw down too. Also Peter McNamara and McEnroe, read it in Facing McEnroe.

Wawrinka most likely had Kygrios up by the scruff of the neck after his infamous "sorry mate Kokk banged your gf" incident. I reckon he wanted to kick his head in which would be understandable but Stan is a classy guy. Kygrios probably had his tail between his legs when Stan came up to him in the locker room.

Not sure about that, Kyrgios had his big brother with him that week, a very imposing figure. Words and possibly threats were surely issued. The Hewitt vs Tomic situation is also intriguing. They did cross paths in the NY Open locker room but nobody knows what happened.

Roddick made Novak cry. Physical and mental edge clearly goes to Roddick.

Disgusting behaviour by Roddick.
Nole has left him in the dust since then anyway as a footnote in history, so it doesn't really matter.

"The account of this Djokovic-Roddick fight was later confirmed by a tennis figure who is friendly with both players, though he declined to offer any extra details. "

This is super old news, but nothing wrong with it being in GM

Rodduck's only moment when he wasn't just a sitting duck and Fed's turkey, but a bully.

It only lasted for a couple minutes in the locker room. :devilish:

His brother said online Wawrinka was lucky he didn’t get involved or he would’ve been withdrawing from the next few tournaments

Wish mods didn't relax the approval process for the thread creation, a shame.
