Federer said: "I must say, I'm impressed." http://www.supersport.com/tennis/atp...ates_after_win

this only proves that Nole's people in charge of PR are very talented.
Does it seem natural? Yes! of course, the guy seems awesome and all
"Hi, I'm Nole! I'm #1 and I'm pretty a cool dude. Please buy my stuff"

Nothing you see on the tube is innocent, there is always something behind it...
unfortunately

I can't believe that journalists will grovel for one chocolate. I used to work in a large hospital, as a nurse. At Christmas time the chief executive would make a tour of the hospital armed with a tin of chocolates, from which staff would be allowed to take one. I have to say I never took up the offer. Anyway the chocolates were probably in the bag of goodies presented to him and his poodle, by the Atp.

nice gesture eh? a nice PR stunt for sure.
if Nole have thought of this by himself then yes it's a nice gesture.

While it's a nice gesture, it was a little ham-fisted imo. Someone of his calibre/standing/resources should have at least put some effort in - not just send someone to the nearest dairy to buy a box of chocolates.

I think Serbia is a pretty cool guy. Eh give amazing chocolate and doesn't afraid of anything.

Novak should do something original. Chocolates are a Swiss idea.

Probably he got Fed's approval.

Maybe after this gesture, reporters told him:" Nole, stop this crap, give us some BEER!":mrgreen:

Please...
The stuck up Swiss is all about the money...

Listen up, your hero Novak Djokovic could live 10 tennis lives and not even be half as popular globally as Roger Federer. Now stop being a bitter fan and face facts. Mr Serbia can give all of the chocolates he wants to journalists after being over two hours late, it won't change the fact that Federer is more beloved by fans and journalists.

It's a testament to his families background - he loves candy because his parents owned a business around food.

Achilles82 11-12-2012 08:51 AM

I was looking for this. Thanks for posting. Great gesture by Novak.

I'm all for helping out the starving media in London.

Shame on Novak trying to make Journalists gain more weight.

Though nice of Novak to treat Journalists for their hard work.

The replies on this thread is lolz...Gotta hand it to Nole and *******s.

Tony48 11-12-2012 09:28 AM

Wow, that IS an incredibly nice gesture.

Now I'm hungry.

Ha ha is Nole trying to bribe the press into talking nicely about him? Smooth. I've always thought he was a bright guy :)
Seriously, he's very generous with his fans too . You should post the video of him greeting his fans at the Shanghai airport (or Beijing, not sure which). Impressive.

Novak "Monte Carlo" Djokovic wishes he could make as much money as the stuck up swiss...

At least federer pays taxes to his home country. Novak just moved to monaco because of the beautiful view. LOL.

Federer has bought drinks for the reporters and journalists several times in the past. Do a little research, you will see...

In any case, most of these are self serving stunts from both djokovic and federer.

Lindt just announced they're pulling the plug on Roger's sponsorship
