Novak Djokovic Gun Photo Creates a Minor Stir [Video]
Novak Djokovic has been doing just about everything right this season. The Serb has lost just one match on the year and after his Wimbledon title earlier this month, he now finds himself atop the tennis world at the No. 1 ranking.
However, Djokovic landed in some controversy last week when his friend and countryman Janko Tipsarevic posted a picture on Facebook showing Janko pointing a gun at Novak Djokovic. (Some of you have voiced your displeasure over the photo on this site over the weekend.)
According to one report the photo was intended to have a little go at Rafael Nadal with the caption “How much $$$ would Rafa gief… ;).”.
While the prank may have seemed all fun and games at the time, it predictably and rightfully produced some uproar and negative publicity (messing with guns is not a good thing, even if they are toy guns; and Rafa fans won’t be pleased).
The photo has since been pulled from Facebook – I’ve added a news story with more details from Argentina’s Canal 5 Noticias above (translations welcome).
Djokovic still has a few more weeks to kill before returning to the tennis courts for Montreal on August 8.
