Bogdan Obradovic Serbian Davis Cup team Coach said in the interview for Spain newspapers (which was translated and publish in Serbian newspapers as well) that Novak finally started to eat meat. He blamed his vegan diet and influence of Pepe for his bad form this year. He said that even little changes in tennis, like changing your racket can affect your game drastically and that Novak changed his whole routine and diet and that affected him badly. He also said that Novak was more meditating then practicing and that he is his own enemy, he added that he has nothing against meditation but that you also have to go to practice and hit the ball million times as well.

He said that he had a problems with pepe because of Novaks diet but he didn't elaborate more on that. He mention that Michael Phelps loves to eat his grandmas food and after he sets Worlds records.

They asked him what kind of relationship he has with Novak - and he answered that Uncle Tony asked him exactly the same question, then he continued to say that he created conflict with Novak in the hope to wake him up. He said that Novak knows that he loves him and he want the best for him. He also told Novak that there is no tennis court or locker room in this world that he can hide from him. he said that he will always tell Novak exactly what he thinks and will not pretend.

They asked him what he thinks about Novak saying that he wants to spend more time with his family now, he said that Federer also has family and he is still able to produce top level tennis so that Novak should find balance. On the end hi said that Novak got off the path he was on and now he is lost in the forest :)

Djokovic declined a bit after years and years of pure dominance.
Give this man some rest instead of coming up with such stories.


Even if he will not improve, current djokovic is capable of winning slams and would straight set nadal in any surface, probably.

I couldn't find a corresponding article in Serbian that implies all that you wrote or that novak is eating meat again.

Can you provide a link? Probably not.

Here's the original article (interview) on the spanish as.com website:

Copa Davis: Obradovic, dolido por Djokovic: "Le quiero mucho, pero tiene un conflicto consigo mismo? - AS.com

The last question is (Google translated):

Finally: will the level of Nole from before?

I have been the one who has generated that conflict in Novak. I want to wake him up. Now we will see how he reacts. He is eating meat, which is good ... We will see how it evolves.
