Djokovic's Father Srdjan Hits Back At People Derogating Son's Recent Achievement

by Sebastian Dahlman

Novak Djokovic's father, Srdjan, slammed people for moving the goalposts all the time to downplay his son's achievements.

Srdjan Djokovic is not one who is afraid to speak his mind on many topics. His comments have caused many controversies over the years, mostly because some of his opinions are quite controversial, or presented in that way.

He's always been quite supportive of his son, and you can't really fault him for that. In a recent interview with Sportal, Srdjan Djokovic questioned the need for people to downplay his son's achievements all the time when it's clear to him that he's by far the best player to have ever held a racquet.

He's not the only one who thinks that way, of course, and there is some truth to what he's saying.

For 15 years, he has been the best in the world in all possible categories. And of course, that annoys them all and they are unable to admit that he is the best in the world. Here, for example, Federer was the best for many years with 310 weeks.

When Novak caught up with him, they invented "oh, no, Steffi Graf has 370 and something weeks. Steffi also passed, so they invented someone from before the Open era, who has 500 and something weeks... Well, you want to will it be in those 500 or so weeks? Well, it will be..

The Serbian keeps pushing the limit himself with every year. He won plenty of trophies this year and once again extended his lead in weeks spent as number one in the world.

He keeps pushing the limit, which simply adds to his own legacy. It's a great one as it is, and he's still motivated to add more. We'll see if he will his country to the Davis Cup trophy this year.
