Djoko is the best...his impresions from 2007 USO are superb!

Indeed his impersonations are quite good.

Djokovic, but it is good that he stopped them.

It is interesting that Djokovic is still bashed for this even though he stopped when he realized some people are not happy about it, while Roddick don't get bashed at all for this and he is still doing them. Double standards yet again.

Also Djokovic's impersonations were good willed and not meant to discredit other players, while Roddick's are tasteless and derogatory.

I haven't seen anyone bashing Djokovic for his impersonations here...why are you saying people bash him?

I don't think Roddick's are tasteless or derogatory. I view them all to be the same. I like them all, I think it's good entertainment, and frankly it can draw attention to tennis and give it more exposure.

Roddick's Serena impersonation is derogatory, also his Djokovic impersonation with impersonating breathing problems and retiring is also derogatory (look at some December 2008 exo he did on youtube).

You should not make fan of other people illnesses or the fact they are overweight.

I personally think it's all in good fun, but it's obviously up to interpretation. It's sort of like when comedians make jokes aout different groups of people. They are just doing it for the sake of humor and fun, and don't truly endorse or believe their comments/jokes.

rofl, roddick running onto court with the butt stuffed was hillarious. im not a softie about peoples feelings, especially hardcore pro athletes. especially at a charity event all in good fun.


did you hate ellen degeneres, george carlin, kathy giffon and the likes? they do and did the same "distasteful" impersonations and remarks.

Oh my.........

your kinda new so lemme explain his hostility.

roddick made fun of his hero djoker and he already hates roddick. so you gotta overlook most anything he says bout roddick, and about 1/3 he speaks of about djoker


sorry but its only facts

Only 1/3. That is not bad.

Anyway still do not like Roddick's impersonations and find them distasteful. Djokovic's impersonation of Nadal was a bit over the top too (I guess that goes to that 1/3 :)), but the others were good.
Also it should be appreciated that he stopped with them, while Roddick wasn't.

i was being honest.. ..


your usually fair and can use proven facts to back up your claim, but once and awhile you tend to get tunnelvision on djokovic

Agreed..

Some people need to take a few chill pills, and stop hating on life........

Speaking about hating:

See.. I would have been the first person to be your friend. But you had to drop the "D" word......

Djokovic can't win pretty and quickly on a hard court. So I can't see him grinding away at the French yet again. I predict retirement for that joker........ ;)

You started early with the trolling.

gj011 is actually right about that roddick impersonation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Am2fhgwIH8M). I really dont care if players impersonate but making fun of a players breathing and health problems is unacceptable.

Oh the breathing problem line?

What has this world come to ;)
It is an established fact that Novak has health problems. I guess it is okay to make fun of people who have medical issues.

Come on.. I grew up with asthma..

And believe me, it wasn't something that I could turn on or off when it suited.. The fact that I did have it, made me weary of people thinking that I would at any stage use it as an excuse.. And I never retired from a match other than breaking my ankle...

Not gonna isten to that one in all honesty...
Well I admire that but in all honestly, compared to djokovic, the tennis you play is absolutely nothing. It is not even close to being as physically demanding as professional tennis. If djokovic does have asthma, then it is a perfectly legit excuse since he is professional athlete not a recreational player.

Nadal impersonates a winner really well.



Who impersonates the greatest loser among the players?

Not gonna isten to that one in all honesty...Djokovic's problem is a lot more serious than asthma and its nothing that can be turned on or off. You should know better than that.

Frank Dancevic for sure. He's a Federer clone on court.

Agreed. not only a funny guy, but a great bloke too, got to meet him once at the AO.

bjorkman was always good value.

Djokovic is a great impersonator, and the only one who took offense was Roddick because he was known as the funny guy.

Roddick has some funny ones, but not as good as Noles

Bjorkman has amazing ones, better than Noles, but I wish he would do some modern players.

Sharapovas beats all :D
