I haven't been writing for a long time, and I know you're not happy about it.

The way to make up for it, is to write a good and interesting diary!

To be honest, I wrote a pretty interesting story about a month ago. I sent it (the way I usually do) to my webmaster on two emails, but the report was bad – NOT DELIVERED! Now you're probably wondering 'why haven't I saved that email'! Well, not my luck… Thank God, there are people in my family capable of working on a computer! With my writing diary once in a blue moon, and 'getting along' with electronics, you can conclude that I'm not one of them!

I'm writing you from a hotel in Sydney, where I'm playing this week, because my performance in Brisbane didn't go as it was expected, and a lack of matches and warming up could be a problem ahead of the first Grand Slam in Melbourne!

My Caesar salad has just arrived, with tempting side dish that I don't refuse…

Since this is my first visit to Sydney, I'm planing to make a tour and check if it really is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, as people say. We're staying in the centre of the city, which will make it easier for us, because everything is relatively close… The beaches and the sand are inevitable this time; we didn't manage to relax in the previous city in which we had training obligations!

Coaches want to try out surfing, and as far as I'm concerned, I'm gonna stay with my feet on the ground. It's much safer and people are superior. Australian sea life, many surfers on white boards…everything makes allusions to an animal that has pretty sharp teeth, that can tear into your little bottom! Ha,ha,ha…

Ok, don't think I'm paranoic…I just want the risk to be minimized. That doesn't mean I'm not going to enjoy with a coctail in my hand watching them become that generous animal's prey! I'm kidding! GOD FORBID!

We should trust the people who are in charge of security of public beaches, and I'm convinced that they keep everything under control (or maybe not)! Ha,ha,ha…

There! I'm back from the beach with a positive impression and 'rinsed' feet. The rest of my body was out of the water, in which coaches were splashing, trying to 'catch' a billow to carry them to the shore…

I'd like to go back now to the end of 2008 and write you about the last tournament of the season, that ended triumphantly in China.

I described it in more detail in that 'lost' email, but I will try to do it in brief outline now.

The season ended the way it started, with a great success! It was the best season in my career so far, the year I won my first Grand Slam, but also the year of ups and downs!

The crisis period is part of sport and every athlete has to go through it. It makes us stronger for the forthcoming challenges.

I have experienced something very unusual in Shanghai! Groups of fans of some players that played at Masters Cup were gathering every day in front of our hotel. There was also a group of my fans that gave me various presents, and in return as a mark of respect, I dedicated them time for signing autographs and taking photos,etc. I was surprised with how well informed they were about my career and private life. They were giving me original presents every day!

I will not forget a girl's letter, where she wrote she had been waiting me for 30 hours to take a photo with me and maybe have a hug! With all her patience and wish to see me, she deserved much more than an autograph and a hug! We won't go into detail! Ha,ha,ha…

However, one guy delighted me most! He learnt by heart to sing our national anthem Boze Pravde (Lord, Give Us Justice) and a song Molitva (meaning 'Prayer') in SERBIAN LANGUAGE! I could not believe it! A Chinese that has no connection to Serbia (except me and tennis) sings our national anthem!

You will be able to see that in a video that will be uploaded soon…

Regards to all of you from Kangaroo land! I wish you all the best in 2009!

Kangaroo Jack :)

Novak's attempts at humor are a little scary, the more than a hug part being even -how shall I put it?- a teeny tiny bit on the sleazy side, on top of being (cough, cough) not so funny...

I found it funny at least. Makes you wonder whether tennis players behave anything like rock stars when it comes to their groupies.

I thought the humor was alright, considering the fact that English isn't his first language.

Yes, I imagine many of them have had their fair share of groupies.

I think his humor comes across to us differantly then he meant because he tped it, you can only show so much emotion on paper.

I don't think those were Novak's exact words. He probably made someone with a better command of English write it for him.

I like the players' blogs. Tursunov was the best one.

I doubt it... Djokovic probably writes it because it is in broken english.

lol I laughed at the groupie comment. He really comes off as a decent, genuine person....not taking himself too seriously; light, corny humor. Gotta love the guy.

OK, Novak, time to lay off the "coctail"s (and the groupies)---you've got a Slam to defend.

^^haha, if he is smart enough he will play tennis for 1 more year, and then like Safin, get a life.

Safin is a man to follow.

most of the touring pros are on that sleazy side,it's all about life's learning experiences.. what do expect a young 20 year old to do? just hit tennis balls all day long? live it to the fullest .. cocktails,beaches,girls, and singing your national anthem.. master-card moments ...

novak's racket change was very sudden, even startling federer. maybe the shock of novak's new stick will affect fed's match play lol

He was startled becuase he didn't think an opportunity like this would come so close a slam. He will take down Djokovic while he's still green with his stick.
