    You obviously ignored all the links where Serbians discussed his cursing as well as the videos. You can claim anything you want, but the videos don't lie.

    Do you speak Serbian? Do you know what was said? Most of those commenting are not Serbian and their comments are not less hateful and untrue than ones posted by Clarky here.

    Are you saying the previous Serbian head of tennis was lying? Or the Bulgarian Ex-PM, who's had Novak as a guest?

    Translations are possible, not sure why you don't think folks can translate from videos.

    None of those links you posted have anything to do with Novak cursing at Vemic or any of his opponents including Murray. They were all about the Madrid match vs Dimitrov.

    Also one tip. If you want to be taken seriously never again quote anything from "Kurir". Really. Never. Nothing published there is truth. It is the worst tabloid in the world. Well known fact in Serbia.

    Even the worst rags get the truth out there at times.

    The tennis guy didnt indicate that Novak only swore in that 1 match.

    He should be fined. I guess it isn't possible after the match is over?.

    Can we talk a little about the split and the possible ramifications? Is there any word on whether or not he's also dropping his main coach? I know he's been struggling a bit this summer, but making big changes right before a grand slam seems like a dangerous move.

    No he is not dropping Vajda. Only Vemic.

    But maybe he didn't have a choice if Vajda had to drop out due to health or family reasons. I can't wait to see if Vajda is at the USO now. Could there be any truth to that Fibak rumor?

    I have never seen anybody's fans be as defensive as those of Djokovic, not only on this forum but any other tennis forum or blog I've been on but you can see where it comes from when even the tennis officials are making excuses. It doesn't matter how vile Djokovic's behavior is, it is never his fault and the rest of the world hates him just because he's Serbian. Pretty sad and pathetic.

    I saw a twitter picture of Fibak's US Open credentials badge and it has his picture with "Coach" and "Novak Djokovic" under the photo.

    Well said. It really is outrageous what Djokovic is getting away with.

    I am sorry but you are completely of the mark and wrong here. I see you are just another hater, but I have to answer all the wrong allegations and misconceptions presented in this post.

    Djokovic's fans have to be defensive. There are just way too many haters who try to take every opportunity to spread lies and bash Novak. This forum is nice example. This thread is even better example. Novak's defensive fans weren't ones who started all the shenanigans and off the topic trolling on this thread. Novak haters started it with ridiculous off topic attacks and lies. And what were Novak's fans supposed to do when faces with such nonsense?

    I don't think they're defensive at all given the insane amount of rabid and gratuitous bullying Djoko is a victim of on those (understandably, they're the biggest stars after all) heavily Fedal oriented boards. I find them rather stoic as a minority trying to withstand the gang-like assault.
    While Djoko occasionally breaks racquets and gets mad, those are pretty "softcore" compared to lengthy outbursts from notoriously bratty guys like Johnny Mac or Roddick. For the occasional slip of temper in difficult matches (and who doesn't experience those?), Djoko is someone who claps for his opponents' good points, finds a way to smile when losing critical points and is always a good sport after a defeat. By any standard, not that much of a bad boy.
    What I find pathetic otoh or at the very least annoying is to validate some agitprop specialists (otherwise known as trolls) by letting them derail a thread about coaching developments into a free for all bashing party that is vastly unrelated to the subject at hand. Maybe the language purists can do us a big favor by opening their own thread about the horrors of Serbian swearing and let the people interested in Djoko's coaching tribulations comment and exchange info in peace.

    You just get more and more ridiculous. I stopped reading your dumb drivel right then and there.

    Could be interesting. I wonder how they will communicate. All Slavic languages are similar-ish.

    Really? I hadn't heard this. Will have to look into it.

    I found one article, but the translation to English was so choppy I couldn't really follow it.
