Novak Djokovic Hates Mockery

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."
