Novak Djokovic Hates Mockery

by Jeff Briggs

Novak Djokovic was upset with Andy Roddick for mocking him about his plethora of injuries. In an interview on Tuesday, Roddick had this exchange with a reporter:

Roddick: Isn't it both of them? And a back and a hip?

Reporter: And when he said there are too many to count …

Roddick: And a cramp.

Reporter: Do you get a sense right now that he is …

Roddick: Bird flu.

Reporter: A lot of things. Beijing hangover.

Roddick: Yeah.

Reporter: He's got a pretty long list of illness.

Roddick: Anthrax. SARS. Common cough and cold.

After beating Roddick yesterday, Djokovic was clearly angry was with the American, and had this to say:

But, wait a minute, wasn't it Djokovic who had this video of him mocking other tennis players, including one Andy Roddick (comes in at the 0:35 mark)?

"Look at me, I'm Novak Djokovic, I hate when people mock other people. That's not nice. I would never mock anyone else. I'm a giant hypocrite."
