To some extents he's right.

All real tennis fans should thank God for sending Joker to crash the neverending party named Fedal.

Let's imagine those 2 guys Slams count without Joker. Over 20 for each?!

Borg, Lendl, Pete, Andre... fanboys, who always bark at Joker, would have to shut their mouths up forever because their idols would look so tiny putting beside Fedal.
 
Djokovic must control his father's tongue.He is speaking like a drunkard.This will increase the pressure on his son.

I think he has been reading these boards and saw all of those Son of God comments and took it literally. I feel for Novak.

I think the networks or Tennis channel should pick him up as a "liason" for the fans to let them know all things tennis, he should wear a suit(or tennis suit) and
be known as Sir (D)John.

It's a pity God's children have gluten-intolerance and need contact lenses to see.

Jesus had no issues with bread, from what i read.

some notable quotes:
Surely he will be one ofthe bestsportsmen ever. All of this it's because he was sent from God.As a family, we tried to make God's wish come true. He can win other 10 Grand Slams," Srdjan stressed
This quote "he was sent from god" shouldnt be taken too literally.

Its just a saying here in Serbia, he doesn't actually believe that.

So, everyone just relax.

Anyone know if the press has asked Novak about all this (there was a previous one too where Djoko Sr criticized Fed) and how he responded?
 
He has six Slams since March 2016 - Roland Garros 2016, Wimbledon 2018, US Open 2018, Australian Open 2019, Wimbledon 2019, Australian Open 2020 - so is still four short of his father's prediction, but more than halfway there. Four more is not impossible (Federer won three Slams after turning 35; Djokovic will only just have turned 33 at the time of the next Slam; Nadal won two Slams at 33), but there's a lot of work to do.

"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.
I agree with Tennis_pro. Srdjan is an imbecile if he talks like this. He should restrict his mouth to talking about things that make sense.

I think even the most optimistic Novak fan can agree that was a wild prediction.

Djokovic winning 10 additional Slams at age 29+ was a far-fetched idea. Specially since back then Fed had won only one Slam after he turned 29

"Sent from God" can't be literally translated, it's an expression. In Serbian it doesn't sound nearly as exaggerated.

If he said "bozji dar" it's not so bad, but if he said "poslat je nama od Boga" that would be a little tougher to defend. All depends whether he meant that the Djokovic clan was gifted with Novak or the entire cosmos. Of course Fedfans can't get ANGRY at this coz they often claim the same for their own idol...

Don't wanna defend Srdjan, because he is a whiny clown, but st may have been lost in the translation...

As for winning ten more slams, I hope nothing got lost in the translation, otherwise he's ready for the cuckoo house, Laza Lazarevic...

JM ... I didn't object to Srdjan's grand slam prediction. Djokovic is a once in a lifetime player so I didn't find his dad's prediction absurd at all. Just the fact he said his son was sent from God :-D

Don't all parents say that though?

OK, maybe not Queen Elizabeth...

Seems Srdjan in March 2016 predicted Roger's number at 20 and claimed Novak would be at 21. I trust Srdjan. 13 years ago he said Novak would have the most GS titles and everyone here laughed. Let's see.

The problem for Novak is Nadal. I think 2 is too big a gap to bridge. Reason is this. Lets say Djokovic can win 4 more. That means effectively the Next Gen are as bad as Dimitrov era. In that case Nadal will also add slams as well. And also it means Federer cannot be ruled out as if all that is ahead of him is 2 players then clearly he can win another Major.

Djokovic had enough chances to be ahead already. I think he has left it too late. I never judge anything off one event but just looking at the picture its a massive ask for him to do it.
It was too bad that Djokovic had his elbow and mental problems. He's absolutely not as focused as Nadal. Nadal is just a machine. Seems like he trains 4 hours every day of his entire life. (When he's knees are bad, he trains his arms for more spin! :)

Nadal also had mental problems in 2015 and a wrist injury in 2016. Federer also had a back injury in 2016.

All players have up and downs in form, not only Novak.

To be honest I'm surprised pops said only 10 and not 20. Especially considering the form Novak was in when he made the statement.

He didn't say that Novak was sent from God, but that his talents and success are gift from God.
