Novak Djokovic Imitates Coach Boris Becker At The Australian Open [Video]
by Staff | January 19th, 2014, 2:33 am

Following a quick 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 win over Italian Fognini, Novak Djokovic made an exception to his rule of no more imitations by breaking one out of coach Boris Becker on Rod Laver Arena earlier today.

Channel 7 on-court interviewer Jim Courier made the request and Djokovic reluctantly obliged. The end result: lots of laughs.

“I’ve seen his face reactions,” Djokovic said of Becker. “The first impression, when I’ve done all the serves, he was happy and he is applauding. When I said how he is today with his problems in the back and everything, he was not so happy about that. He was upset.

“But, no, it’s all for good laughs. It’s actually the first time after a long time I’ve actually done Becker imitation. I don’t know how I was.

“I’m going to gain few kilos and have to color my hair in order to do the proper Becker imitation.”

Steve27 Says:

The match was so embarrassing to see that Djokovic had to make another of his endless imitations to entertain the crowd, which was indebted to see a show moderately acceptable because of the lack of effort that huge clown named Fabio Fognini. Really shameful!

Hippy Chic Says:

Didnt see the match but Noles impressions are always very funny IMO ha ha.

mat4 Says:

Fognini always looks this way, relaxed, casual even.

But he didn’t play that bad, and he put a good effort in that match: he saved 16 BP along the way, made 20 winners, and some of his FHs were absolutely stunning.

But he is a kind of player that suits Djokovic well. He’s fast, but his court positioning is not always the best, and Djokovic is as fast as he is. Novak’s groundstrokes are a bit better and a lot more consistent, although Fabio’s FH can be impressive.

Finally, Novak plays by the book, with a clear plan in every situation. A little bit here, a little bit there, some luck, a lot in motivation and belief, and the difference becomes huge.

Queen Says:

What a clown…just disappear

Alexandra Says:

Djoker must be really bored by his easy draw. I have no idea why he always has to go back to these stupid imitations.

Giles Says:

Joker is an attention seeker hence the hiring of BB. Now all we have to do is wait for the firing!

WTF Says:

Still waiting for Pete Sampras or Andre Agassi to coach Rafa.

bojana Says:

That is role of the haters all the time calling some thing bad to happen so they could be happy.
Nole was asked to do impressions,bat haters are calling that “attention seeker”.
There are many names for people like these but for me they are sick haters.

mat4 Says:


Don’t bother to reply to trolls. I fall into this too many often myself, though.

coke man G Says:

Wawarinka is a bit of dangerous match up for Djokkovic. I think he’s the most consistent and dangerous of the guys that are in that second tier (tsonga, berdych, etc.) and I see him as someone who could make some noise in slams and break into top 5 this year. DelPo’s too injury prone, Ferrer’s not really a threat, Federer is a question mark. If Djokovic gets through him I don’t really see Ferrer/Berdych stopping him.

bojana Says:

Thanks mat4 I know that but some times I just must say something.
What do You think about Nole’s second serve?

mat4 Says:

Nole plays well. He has improved his FH in general, both IO and DTL. He hit it with spin, or flat, and made a lot from it.

His serve is good, and he has protected his second serve very well, serving aggressively, and with a lot of spin on this shot.

In general, he played in the open court in this tournament, avoiding CC exchanges and pining his opponent before a change of direction, what he often did in the past.

He manages to play DTL both with his FH and his BH, and he kept his opponents on the run.

If he keeps his mental composure, he is certainly one of the most serious favourites for the title.

NoleFan Says:

I’m sure Djoko will make another 3 sets game against Wawrinka! Should you disagree, please accept the challenge, we’ll check after who was right :

Michael Says:

Novak is a crowd pleaser and he wants it to be entertained. Sensing that it was looking a rather one sided match which dulled the spectators, Novak thought best that he could try some of his antics pleasing the audience and you should appreciate him for that because here is a player who in the midst of seriousness still has the space to cajole the crowd.

Rick Says:

Djokovic usually ended up in defeat, when he was trying to be funny in the tournament. I think the same was at the US Open. It will be difficult to play Nadal or Murray in the final. I am not sure about Boris being his coach. He was known as being moody in his career. I am not sure that, if he could helps Nole with his mental game.

Adam Parsons Says:

I think no one ever expected him to really stop these pranks from a scratch… I hoped he wouldn’t, I love him (both as a player and an entertainer)! Let’s see how Becker helps him improving.

Hippy Chic Says:

I think its a great way of realing the pressures of the tour,nothing wrong with a few lighthearted moments,the only thing i dont care for is the OTT shirt ripping celebrations at the end of matches,but im fine with the impressions as i think they are quite funny.

Giles Says:

The question is whether the people he impersonates thinks its funny or downright embarrassing for them!

Rick Says:

I told you guys that, when Djokovic fooled around in the tournament. He usually ended up defeated in that tournament. Boris is definitely not a good mental coach!
