Djokovic Admits to Overreacting to Roddick’s Comments

Posted by hiphopmama on September 7, 2008

Maybe the guy does have an inkling of sense after all. Having complained to and about the fans at the U.S. Open and gotten all prickly over Roddick’s poking fun at his frequent need to call the trainer on the court, Djokovic finally softened up after his loss to Federer in the semifinals and conceded that his response was out of hand.

“He made a joke and it was a misunderstanding. 

Maybe I exaggerated and reacted bad in that moment. I apologise if I reacted like that. This was just impulsive.”

It feels a little like Hillary Clinton endorsing Barack Obama way after the fact – like, great, now that we’re all past the point of no return let’s go ahead and make things right. Still, I’m impressed he owned up to his fussing at all. It’s not usually like him. Birth of a kinder, gentler Djokovic? I think not, but here’s hoping.
