Srdjan Djokovic "Novak is the best sportsman in the world. Very quickly he will be the best athlete ever."

The temerity to talk about him being the messiah for third world countries when he dodges taxes by living in Monte Carlo. He’s well within his rights to do so, but let’s not pretend that he is anything but part of the global elite now.
Why are you so full of 5hit?

Serbia is in the middle, not even close to third world. But I guess whatever makes you happy.

Obviously talking about Novak, who Srdjan is touting as this representative of the impoverished masses when he lives in one of the richest enclaves in the world for tax purposes. Like I said, Novak (and Sinner and the others that live in tax havens) are free to do as they wish, but let's not paint them out to be connected to the common man in any way.

This guy is the reason I absolutely HATE Novak now........I got over Nadal beating Fed's record relative quickly but it makes my blood boil that this pos will have an ego larger than the expanding universe when Novak breaks his record.

The ultra patriotic sentiments plus the religious tone he speaks in about Novak sometimes are very foreign to me and seem to come from a closed off view of the world. But listening to the interview, the manner in which Srjdan speaks, I think underneath the crazy he really is a suuuuper proud dad who thinks his child is the best. I think that's a fairly common feeling among parents. Srjdan just has no filter lol

Srdjan is crazy. Novak keeps saving him by performing. One day Srjdan will chew more than he can swallow.

Why do people quote someone's parents for their opinions about their son or daughter??? Are they expecting an objective viewpoint??
In general, parents are known to be subjective on any topic that concerns their kids. But it is not the case with Srdjan who is rational, objective, precise, unbiased, unprejudiced, non-partisan, factual and extremely modest in his analysis of his own kids. I trust no one but Srdjan.

And, by the way, Srdjan >Bobby

Novak was lucky to escape this as a kid and live in different countries far from it while growing up.

The damage is done at his early age, but still not as big as it could have been.

Show us how has he been dodging taxes! If you do not know how or if you don't - you are full of 5hit.
Ah, so you're one of those who believe he and everyone else moved to Monte Carlo because of the weather and not because you don't have to pay income taxes on endorsements there. Carry on....

What he's saying is typical "proud dad" staff, nothlng to write home about. This thread should be blasted to oblivion.
Exactly! It is not Srdjan's fault that people are obsessing or debating about what he said on any matter. They promote him further. His performance is rather stellar and will be long remembered.

By the way, he makes better pizzas than Robby. He must be the GOAT father then!

No bud I do not think that, bud. I am asking you to SHOW us how has he been DODGING taxes. This is my third time that I am underlining the same question. Still you want to water it down by expanding a meaningless discussion on what I believe rather than explaining how the dodging is done.

So yes, you are full of 5hit.

Dodging does not imply illegality, if that's what you think I meant. He, and everyone else, chooses to represent Serbia/their country of birth while residing in MC to avoid income tax in Serbia/country of birth on endorsements (they still have to pay taxes on prize money in the countries they earn it). Same philosophy as corporations incorporating in a different country (Ireland, Cayman Islands) with favorable tax regimes. All common practices by globally wealthy.

As I said, he can do what he wants -- it's legal. Bit of a joke that Srdjan is trying to make him out to be some sort of everyman when he's firmly ensconced in the ranks of the globally wealthy in his practices.

Anyway, no point engaging with people who have tunnel vision when it comes to anything Djokovic related.

Read up tunnel vision boi. If you are not financially smart then you pay taxes and the politicians do whatever they want with your money. If you are financially smart you minimise your taxes and run a foundation to invest your money where it matters the most and FOR REAL. EOD.
