US Open tennis: Novak Djokovic ally reveals harsh truth about star’s ‘out of control’ anger

Published

Two of the women who know Novak Djokovic best have revealed their fears for the Serbian superstar after his US Open brain snap cost him a shot at his 18th grand slam title.

The world No. 1 was sensationally disqualified from the tournament on Monday for hitting a lineswoman in the throat with a ball after he reacted angrily to going down a break in the first set of his fourth round clash with Spain’s Pablo Carreno Busta.

Djokovic has never attracted the same affection as his biggest rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and critics rightfully took aim — both for his on-court behaviour and the way he fled Flushing Meadows without facing the press and owning up to his mistake.

Aided by a sycophantic fan base known as “Nolefam”, who defend their man to the hilt on all matters and attack anyone who dares criticise him, Djokovic is a protected species in his homeland.

But even some of his closest allies know something needs to give. That was evident when Djokovic’s wife Jelena took to social media overnight to quote The Wisdom of Tao.

“If you let yourself be blown to and fro, you lose touch with your root. If you let restlessness move you, you lose touch with who you are,” she wrote.

Even more revealing were comments made by former world No. 5 Daniela Hantuchova on Amazon Prime UK’s broadcast of the US Open.

The 37-year-old is extremely close with Djokovic and his wife, and is also tight with his coach Marian Vajda, a fellow Slovakian. Hantuchova has known Djokovic since his early days on tour and is a huge supporter, but she wasn’t afraid to tell him some harsh truths.

She said the 17-time major winner has an anger management problem and needs to seek professional help. Hantuchova added an incident like what we saw in New York was a long time coming and Djokovic has nobody to blame but himself.

“It feels like sometimes the anger comes out of control,” Hantuchova said.

“I care so much about him and respect everything he is doing for our game, but I just hope there is a lesson to be learned, even if this one came at the worst possible time, where pretty much the only thing standing between him and an 18th grand slam title was himself, with all my respect to the other players.”

Hantuchova echoed the sentiment of Jelena Djokovic’s quote, saying the star was spreading himself too thin and ruining his good intentions with poor timing.

“So many times he has the right intentions, it’s just with the timing he’s not getting it right, like the Adria Tour,” Hantuchova said. “There’s no problem with running an exhibition tour like that, just not when the whole world stops. Same with the ATP stuff. Sure things need to change, but not right now.”

Nick Kyrgios tells Novak Djokovic’s father not to ‘push the blame’ onto Grigor Dimitrov

Published

on

The fallout from the Adria Tour continues with Nick Kyrgios hitting back at Novak Djokovic’s father for trying to “push the blame” onto Grigor Dimitrov following a string of positive coronavirus tests.

The controversial tournament, the brainchild of 17-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, took place in Serbia and Croatia despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Players and fans did not wear facemasks during events and did not adhere to social distance rules with Djokovic insisting that they were following guidelines set out by the Serbia government.

The first big bombshell dropped on Sunday evening when world No 19 Dimitrov confirmed he returned a positive coronavirus test after returning home to Monaco, and Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki also tested positive, but the latter two were still in Croatia.

World No 1 Djokovic added his name to the list when he announced on Tuesday that both he and his wife Jelena tested positive for Covid-19 after they flew back to Serbia.

Opinion: Reckless Novak Djokovic paying the ultimate price for his vanity project

His father, Srdjan, was unimpressed by Dimitrov and blamed the Bulgarian.

“Why did it happen? Because that man probably came sick, who knows from where,” Djokovic Sr. said of Dimitrov on RTL Croatia TV.

“He didn’t test here, he tested somewhere else … I think that’s not fair.

“He inflicted damage to both Croatia and to us as a family in Serbia.

“Nobody is feeling well because of this situation.”

Kyrgios, who has been very outspoken about the Adria Tour, hit back at Srdjan in an Instagram Story as he wrote ” don’t push the blame”.
