Novak Djokovic Out of Control, Smashing His Racket
  • When you threw the racket, does it concern you that one day, that… that could cost you dearly? I mean, if the ball would have hit someone today, is that something you think you ought to address?

You guys are unbelievable.

  • Why is that unbelievable?

Yeah, because you’re always picking this kind of things. It’s, it’s incredible.

  • You keep doing these things.

I keep doing these things? Why don’t I get suspended then?

  • Look, I’m saying you’re close, aren’t you? That’s what I’m saying.

I’m close? I’m still not suspended so if I’m not close, I’m not close.

  • What’s it been like to be something of the bad guy, chasing after Roger (Roger Federer) and Rafa (Rafael Nadal) all these years?

I don’t consider myself a bad guy, but you know, it’s your opinion. But, um… I’m not chasing anybody. I’m making my own path, and my own journey, and, you know, my own history. So I’m privileged to be part of history of this sport that I, that I love.
