    During a crucial moment in the match Novaks dad was clearly visible out of his seat cheering for Jankovic over Ivanovic, does anybody know why this is besides that they are both Serbian, because it was my understanding that Novak was better friends with Ana and that they had known each other since childhood...? So any answers for me?

    ^^^No I watched the whole match as well and his dad was def there, in fact he had to be told to be seated he was cheering so hard, the commentators even said that that was Nole's dad cheering for Jankovic...

    Flyer is right. Novak's dad was cheering for Jelena. I don't know why though.

    He is right. ESPN commented on it and how he has to be told to get back into his seat.

    I can't believe he behaves like a freak even when somebody else is playing. Maybe Jelena is his secret daughter...

    Maybe he is hooking up with Jelena himself?

    Its possible his dad was just excited about 2 female Serbs, playing incredible points, having a great match, and 1 will be in the finals. Give him the benefit of the doubt that he was happy for both and Serbs in general.

    Or maybe because Ana travelled on the private plane with Nadal and for some reason Djokovic's dad was unhappy about that? or maybe I'm just thinking too much...

    ok I shouldn't have used the word "hooking" but I just don't see Djokovic with Jelena.

    That would make sense. Since Ana accepted Nadal's invitation, the Djokovics have turned against her and vowed to never talk to her again and cheer like mad on all her opponents. For retaliation, Ana will attend the semi tomorrow and cheer on Rafa as loudly as she can.

    It would be better if it was Ana's mother, that way even more theories are possible!!!!!!

    (It's like you see Djoker's dad cheering for Rafa ROFL)

    At the end of the match, Rafa will jump into the stands to hug Ana and thank her for her support (that led him to one of his most spectacular victories). Then both Djoko's mom and dad will go nuts and will have to be dragged out of the place by all the available bodyguards while Djoker will be sobbing on his chair.

    probably Djoko tried to ask Ana out for dinner or something but got rejected, and then Ana flew with Nadal...

    I think the pressure from her section caused her to lose the match.

    NEWSFLASH.

    Djokovic's father was not the guy. I know he looks the same but that was just Jelena's coach who resembles Novak's father. Novak and Jelena are good friends, but Novak and Ana are childhood friends and Srdjan would have not done this even if he was present, and he was not. Make sure you read this one, because I have no intention of posting this over and over, period.

    Pic is from one of her previous matches. google more if you're interested in, this is the guy who is with her all the time.

    I thought it odd that Novak's dad would be decked out in Reebok gear. Some people are just scraping the barrel for h8 it seems.

    How can you win a match with papa Djoko gesticulating and howling in the background?

    That much maybe. Anyways I had a pleasure of sitting in a coffee shop with him, aparrently he told my friend how to swipe the clay courts properly and not as we all do it, reffering to the way it's done at RG. Then I found out they use the same methods as we do here. Inventing hot water did not work for him this time, maybe he'll be more succesfull. He is as big arse as people think he is.

    So, I guess the naive guy that called him a lunatic should re-evaluate himself before offending others?

    People make mistakes, though a bit too often on these boards. He was not there, does not mean he's not a headcase.

    Perhaps the commentators are as misinformed as you, I saw highlights and the mentalist in the stands was most likely her coach.

    it was not her coach was there but novaks dad was dressed differently and not wearing a hat, im sure it was novaks dad because i know what he looks like and i know what her coach looks like and it was deffinatly novaks dad, they repeatedly showd her coach so they know what he looks like too...

    it was def his dad that not my question, my question is does anyone know why he was cheering for jankovic, my only thought is that perhaps he was actually cheering for ivanovic but somehow it apeared he was cheering for jankovic and that was what the commentators and viewers misunderstood, it was def mr djokovic though

    Note : This is just for fun



    Djokovic's Dad on Jerry Springer


    Jerry Springer : Mr. Djokovic, you were seen at the French Open cheering for Jelena Jankovic. Your son is a childhood friend of Ana Ivanovic, why not cheer for her?

    Djokovic's Dad : Well Jerry, you see, my son has a bit of a crush on Ana you know. Both him and her are great friends, but she doesn't see him the same way. I don't like her very much anyways, she is always around that raging bull friend of hers.

    Jerry Springer : You mean Rafael Nadal, *in spanish accent* the "Raging Bull" of Mallorca!

    Djokovic's Dad : *Shakes head* Yes, that guy. He's very despicable no? Already has a girlfriend and is now talking up another one!

    Jerry Springer : Well Mr. Djokovic, I believe Nadal was just giving Ana a ride in his plane. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Djokovic's Dad : No! That is not right! My son is the new King of the Tennis World! ARGH! She should be with him! Not that crazy Spaniard! Why?!

    Jerry Springer : Uh, let's bring out Ana Ivanovic to explain what is really going on.

    *Ana comes in*

    Ana : Rafael is a great person Mr. Djokovic... plus... he has these *speaks seductively* guns *winks*. He's a nice guy too! We're just friends anyways.

    *Novak comes in and gets on his knees*

    Novak : Why Ana?! Why did you leave me?!

    Ana : Because you don't last long enough! No stamina! And of course, Nadal *in seductive tone* never quits *winks to Nadal in the crowd*.

    Crowd : Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    *Nadal suddenly jumps onto the stage and flexes*

    Nadal : VAMOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No question flyer, we all get the same feed of the same cameras from RG people so there was no her father there. Period.

    i have a theory about this too:

    maybe he was cheering for Jelena that much because he is a miseducated person. since this is not the first time he misbehaves on the stands, i guess im right. untly Jmac says the other way...
