    "He was sent from God"
    "He can win 10 more Slams"

    Based on these 2 statements alone I think Srdjan needs to have his brain checked.

    Srdjan, thanks forever for working hard to create good conditions for the Caesar to develop, but seriously, share that stuff you are smoking with the rest of us.

    This was actually hilarious. He thinks Djokovic, will win 21 slams. For the sake of the amusement, he generates, he should continue speaking. God sent him to us.

  11. Even if he said 4 more Slams people here would call him a mentally ill person, but freaking 10? Was he drunk while saying that?

    Well, just to be fair, barring any injuries, 5 more slams is indeed likely for Djoker to achieve. He has a chance to catch Fed.

    Srdjan knows Djokovic is not his son. That great kid came from other sources. He just happened to be the cover.

    Either Srdjan is secretly a Fed fan trying to make sure Fed stays the popular one

    Or Srdjan needs a brain transplant.

    Probably the latter

    Srjdan always believed that his son will end up as a most accomplished tennis player ever. Even back in the days when his son was practicing in an empty swimming pool, while bombs were flying over his head. This interview is just an example of father believing immensely in his son, while being very honest about those feelings. It's a beautiful human story and great example for all fathers out there...

    So true. And as Daddy Djok appears to have (had?) a restaurant in Serbia, I guess he's experienced, though. :cool:

    I don't blame Djok at all, rather the opposite - I remember well that a couple of years ago he actually sort-of BANNED his parents from attending his matches. The guy is smart, indeed.
    Still, it wouldn't hurt for him to try and get the rabbit back in the hat again.

    I think he could get 8-11 more. There seems to be a lull right now. The next generation hasn't been able to win a slam or challange for one.

    If the court surfaces don't get sped up and he avoids any major injuries, I predict:

    He'll get 3-4 in 2016.
    2-3 in 2017
    then probably 1-2 for a few more years.

    Still has, it is a nice restaurant.
    Judging by these comments, I am not so sure he is experienced. ;)
    He sort of kicked them out permanently, I think in 2012. Tomic tried to do that with his father/coach during a match though he was asking for the umpire to intervene.
    I am sure Djokovic will react to this, but I bet Srdjan could drop another bomb before the intervention. :D

    Srdjan seems to have gone completely gaga but that's OK. We all go a little crazy every now and then. ;)

    Ah, nice to know. I might pay him a visit next time I visit Belgrade (or wherever it is). No worries, I'll just visit for the food and drinks. :D

    Yeah... it must be pretty annoying for these players to know their family members can be such a nuisance. I'm sure Novak will know how to deal with it though.
    Tomic, I'm not so sure about... ;)

    Every parent believes their child is the best. My mother said I had the best backhand in the world.

    To be fair to Novak, I'd be completely embarrassed to hear my dad say stuff like that about me. I think he's doing a fine job keeping it together because a parent like that makes it very difficult to be down to earth, but also makes it tough to deal with expectations. I also wonder how Novak's brothers are being treated. Some parents appear to be nice and actually supportive in a healthy way, like Federer's and Nadal's parents. I won't say Srdjan is on the level of Tomic's father or anything, and being proud of your child is good, but this is not light stuff to say, especially in public. I could imagine it's very tough for Novak too when you're being taught you are "sent from god to fulfill his wishes". Sport dads can be absolutely horrible when they start to see their child as a vessel for their own projects and dreams.

    Then again, I don't know them personally so maybe in their personal lives they're completely different, but still.

    Very well sad, with a slight addition: mums can be equally horrible... ;)

    Of course it's perfectly fine to think your kid is the 'best', the 'prettiest', the most wonderful in the world, etc.
    Regarding the tons of pictures of godawful ugly kids being posted on FB by their parents daily, I guess that's how it works.

    It's a complete different matter though, to broadcast it through the media as being the dad of an indeed very good sportsman, if only for the pressure it puts on said sportsman.

    I was showing how I was amused by what he said. Not the same type of amusement as the real one in the gif, but still it makes sense.

    That they can. Here in Canada we call them "hockey moms." Ice hockey being the most popular sport here and a contact one at that, it usually brings out the worst in them when their kid(s) are playing.

    Being overly enthusiastic to the point of craziness can ruin a good thing.

    Federer will be on suicide watch if Novak broke his record of 17, even Nadal for that matter.

    Agree to disagree.

    One can be amused or disbelieved in both cases, not sure why are you creating much fuss about this.

    i agree with you, but i think poster and you can come to an agreement here. It displays disbelief indeed, but in a ridiculed fashion. Which in itself is amusing to see, hence why he posted it imo.
