Take a look at this clip.

Have the patience to go to the end when the actual interview takes place.

Excellent interview. When you listen to the whole thing it is very balanced.

Yes very nice interview.

It is very interresting to see that the same interview can make people to create two such different threads. One made by a troll claiming "Arrogant quitter strikes again", and this one.

It is also interesting to see how journalist tried to put a bad spin on the whole thing with the totally inappropriate title "Djokovic attacks 'spoiled' Brits", which is completely out of context and not consistent with what Novak actually said. I would expect better from the BBC.

This shows us again that everything we hear from the media should be taken with a grain of salt.

Thank you so much for posting that, Leublu tennis!

I'm so sick of people taking interviews out of context it's not even funny! :mad:

Let's not forget the Federer/Murray saga a month or two ago. Now Federer refuses to give the morons any dirt, so they turn on Djokovic instead. Go figure.

seeing as how he is possibly the next no 1, he's getting a good start on his own hater following. for some reason people resent success and take every chance to talk trash about guys like fed or nadal or joker or roddick, etc.

I've disliked this kid since he was top 50 and now that he's in the spot light he just gives more reason.

The other one is a troll thread with inappropriate title. I prefer this one.

I cant stand the way he retires etc etc but i knew as soon as i saw the title of the other thread that there was nothing wrong with what he was saying. Its all true. I hate the title of the clip though, the media as usual trying to make something out of nothing, especially since that part was only about 20 seconds in a 12min clip. It should have been titled something like 'Djokovic's ambitions'

Except for the fact that rational thought doesn't seem to be welcome in that thread.....................

I didn't have a problem with what he said about brits, but him quitting the match against Fed because of a sore throat takes the cake for me.

Thank you all for the nice comments. Djokovic is an interesting guy and he is only 20 years old. I think too much is expected from him at this point. He has had amazing success and he strikes me as being a pretty intelligent guy. I was not his fan but he is growing on me.
