from google translate:

"The man came sick who knows where and so it happened. I don't think it's right that he wasn't tested there, but in another place. He caused great damage to you in Croatia and to us as a family and Serbia," Djokovic's father added.

sorry about the title, he wanted to say Dimitrov hurt both Croatia and Serbia, the title was paraphrased by this tennis journalist

This focus on who infected who is in a fundamental sense meaningless anyway. Someone always infected the guy who infected you, and we can keep doing that routine all the way till we're back in Wuhan.

THE POINT IS WHEN YOU ORGANIZE A DUMB EVENT LIKE THIS YOU'RE BOUND TO IMPORT AND SPREAD THE VIRUS DO YOU NOT GET THIS SRDJAN WHY AM I SHOUTING

Didn't he know there are covid cases in Croatia? There are several positive nuns in a monastery in Croatia.

It's not as if there was zero case in Croatia and then Dimitrov came with the virus!!!!

Not defending anyone, but before dimitrov announced he was positive there were around 10-15 cases in the whole country with only 5 being treated in hospitals (none of them required a respirator). The nuns covid outbreak news came after adria tour had already been cancelled.

Still not getting what a highly contagious virus is, aren't you?

Look man, i'm not a djokovic fan and i already said his actions were reckless, i was just correcting somebody who unknowingly said something which wasn't correct. So stop assuming things you can't possibly know.

This guy is a scumbag.

I've spent a lot of time criticising Novak lately, but with a father like that, he never stood a chance, did he? He was always going to turn out to be a dangerous idiot, and may deserve a measure of pity. Novak still deserves all the crap he gets as he is a grown man who has seen more of the world than most people, so should be wiser, but at least Srdjan gives some context to why he is the way he is.

Daddy Djokovic trying to throw Dimitrov under the bus to take the heat off his kid is incredibly scummy. This family have no honor.

All the players who participated were irresponsible to an extent. If Grigor had symptoms but participated anyways, he'd be *especially* dim.

But the way Djokodad and a minority of his hardcore fans are bending over backwards to deflect from the guy who made this event happen is pretty wild.

in fact, maybe srdjan hates his son more than fedr... :unsure:
(does he really think he helps novàx each time he opens his big mouth?)
Srdjan is trying to do some damage control locally. Srdjan doesn't care about the Anglo-Saxon public or media, all these social network influencers, PC twitter warriors, reporters, journos etc. He has made up his mind about the Western audience long before Novak becomed relevant as a tennis player. But he deeply cares how Novak is perceived in Serbia, Croatia and all these other Balkan countries. That's why all of his interviews, this one, the Federer's ones, are simply addressing to the public of that region.

Correcting what? Do you think the nuns were infected after the Adria Tour finished? They can't possibly just got infected during Adria Tour!! The incubation period is a long time. They got it from their travel overseas, so they brought the virus from their travel, they didn't get it from Adria Tour event.

So it's not as if Dimitrov was the one who brought the virus. There were already others who had the virus.



“Two nuns from that monastery stayed abroad and upon returning they evidently didn’t adhere to the measures and what happened is that ten nuns are infected,” he told N1 television.

Epidemiologists are on the scene and will classify everyone who has been at risk of infection.

What is not good is that ten persons are positive and 300 people come there every day as it is a big monastery with many nuns, said Capak.
Oh yeah, it seems i misunderstood your first post where you said something like "didn't he know there were covid cases with nuns" i thought you were talking about novak djokovic while he was in Croatia but you meant srdan right now. My bad, didn't read it thoroughly and i agree with you actually.

I don't know if it's working, but I guess, this is what's important to Srdjan.
In which way his comments about Novak, Federer, Nadal, etc will be perceived in the Western media, or on twitter, or on some tennis forums or whatever, the man doesn't give a f.ck about that.

(Just to make the translation more clear.) It sounds a bit like "god knows where this man has been".
 
I feel more for the general public who are infected. Children, their parents, their grandparents. Human being's live matters.
I very much agree. The players get their VIP tests quick. The general public is left stranded. Who knows how effective the contact tracking is in Croatia.
I do feel for Novak though. He was very wrong to organize it and his refusing to test onsite or the first statement all were disappointing to say the least but it can't be denied that a huge number of people hating on him are always in queue to hate him. They just got their golden chance.

People need to have a balanced approach to these things.

Is it wrong for me as a Fed fan to start feeling a little for Novak right now...I mean, the poor guy just can't get a break this year. :-D
No, Novak's genuinely a nice guy. If he and his team had used some common sense and apologised right away then some of this could have been avoided.

This is true, but Fed fans are human, we've taken a lot of grief this year from Novak fans rubbing our faces in it and telling us how sh*t our guy is. And when his father's making it worse all by himself you'd have to be pretty saintly not to enjoy it a little bit.

well I don't agree with the premise that if fans of A player are mean then the fans of B player get a green card.
It's okay with me if people blame him for his actions(i did that too) but we got people here who were wishing he tested positive, thrown out of the player's council and maybe even banned.
Few were vocal about it but we all know there are many clansmen who wished it happened.

Calling basic decency saintly is setting a very low standard imo.
