The Djokovic family held a press conference in Belgrade and went offensive.
The Djokovic family goes on the attack. Srdjan Djokovic is never in the lace. Confirmation. After having compared his son to Spartacus with the Serbian press, the father of the champion to whom Australia refuses his entry into its territory, compared his son in Belgrade to… Christ on the cross, during a rally in support of his son organized in front of the Assembly of the country, Nothing but that! “Jesus was crucified on the cross and everything was done to him. But he’s still alive with us now. Now Novak is being crucified, they are doing everything to him “.
The father also played on the nationalist fiber by evoking the “ pride “From the Serbian people:”Nole (Djokovic’s nickname) is the heart of Serbia, our pride. Our pride they want to bring to their knees, but they will not succeed! Serbs, and all the other libertarian nations of the world, the time has come to stop being oppressed! (…) My son, he continues, is in captivity but he has never been so free. Novak will become a symbol and a leader of the free world, the leader of oppressed countries and peoples. Even a small heroic country like Serbia can have the greatest athlete of all time. You may be put in jail today or tomorrow, but the truth always finds its way. Novak fights for the equality of all the peoples of the planet.“
According to Srdjan, his son was treated by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison “as a criminal when he is a healthy and honest man, and an athlete who has not endangered anyone’s life and has not committed any federal or legal offense.“
