Novak Djokovic:What he said, really meant and definitely did not


Novak Djokovic at their first-round match of t...

What he said:

"I’m aware of the responsibility that I have as a present number one to represent the sport in some ways off the court. So I need to do that in a best possible way. You know, I’m trying. You tell me, how am I doing?"

Novak Djokovic cares about being No.1.

What he really meant:

“It’s quite difficult, you know. Earlier, I could take the mickey out of Roger (Federer) or Rafael (Nadal) when they were ranked higher. But I can’t mimic myself, can I?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“That explains the Maria Sharapova Head commercials.”

 

Q & A with Roger Federer


Roger Federer at the 2008 Beijing Olympics

We caught up with Roger Federer after his loss to Jo Wilfried Tsonga at the Montreal Masters.

1) How does it feel to hit 30?

Not so good, actually, but, of course, I’m not going to say that despite my having my worst year (in terms of majors) since 2002.

2) How’s it going at Montreal?

Not good at all. I thought that Tsonga would take the hint and realize it’s Rogers’ Cup but no. Now they all enjoy taking the mickey out of me. And Nadal (chuckling).

3) Will this affect your US Open preparation?

No, not at all. You saw how I played prior to the French Open and yet I made the finals at Roland Garros.

4) Is retirement on the cards?

I’m still young, I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee (occasionally). Don’t count me out till I’m 35 and then I’ll join Pete (Sampras) on the Champions’ tour.

5) How does Mirka feel about you continuing your touring ways?

As long as I babysit the kids, she has no complaints. (Luckily, the diapers changing phase is past).

Do say: You’re still No.3.

Don’t say: 16—no more.

Disclaimer: The character(s) are real but the interview is fictional.


I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.

Will Rogers
