Janko Tipsarevic hits a pure ace down the middle with his imitation of Novak Djokovic commanding his coaching team. The skit took place during the ATP Player Show in Monte Carlo last week when the pros annually gather to put on a series of skits all in good fun.

In this performance, Tipsarevic lays into his good friend Novak who is known for imitating the players on court. Turn around is fair play!

The video starts with Janko/Novak on the phone with Robert DeNiro, a friend of Djokovic’s.

He then explains to his team that he’s “cursed” and he “can’t sleep at night” because he’s losing sets at tournaments. He adds that he’s happy to give his fellow Serbs games, but not sets!

Janko goes on to reveal that Serbia needs Novak to run the country, because he’s a “national treasure for crying out loud”.

Throughout the skit, Janko makes fun of Novak’s breathing and stretching. Hilarious stuff and the player audience agrees.

Janko is very good actor!


Nina Says:

This vid is priceless, an instant classic. Who knew janko was such a great comedian? And his English is perfect. I was laughing so hard… genius.


jane Says:

Janko, haha. Good one. He gets the Serbian tennis/mafia joke going well – the phone calls with DeNiro and “Obama who?” Then the whole ” Next season, 5 shots! The point must end in 5 shots.” And all the snorting and stretching. Ha. Thanks for posting it Tom.

On another note, Nole looked really nice at the end there, in his suit jacket and jeans, :)


Sale Says:

And, of course, Janko nailed it with the bullying attitude towards the grovelling team.

It’s a caricature, but each caricature stems from the truth.

And this truth is not pretty at all.


dari Says:

Seems to be the social- casual uniform of choice for tennis players,huh Jane? Cute shoes, too.


Skeezerweezer Says:

Janko,

Hang up the tennis shoes, dude u can act :), watch out Hollywood..


Miki Says:

Hahahahha, Janko was hilarious :)The funniest part to me was: Maybe my brother Giorgio can do it, he is only 13-14, but he stays in the family. Mafia style :)

Sale, this is supposed to be a joke, of course there’s a little bit of truth, but this is like a parody, not meant to be serious. And the team bullying, well Janko is just making fun of Novak’s results this year :)


stu Says:

Hilarious. He sounds too much like Janko tho :)


sar Says:

Janko once said, ‘I hate Novak, but in a good way.’ lol
He will be set up with a job for life at the Djokovic tennis academy.

What have you been smoking? Janko said this was a parody and that Nole was not at all like that. They’re just making fun of him because he’s been invincible this year. Nole has a great relationship with his team. You must be a hater…


Sean Randall Says:

Janko might be my new favorite player. Great stuff!


zola Says:

Either I am going deaf or the audio was not very clear.Anyway, it was great. I don’t think they would have done it if Djoko was a bully. On the contrary, it shows how relaxed they all are.

Amazingly all the serbian players are very talented! The sniffs and the “Obama Who”, were pricelss!
