It’s interesting to me that tennis announcers always refer to Novak’s “off-court” problems without providing context or, God-forbid, details. Here’s what my “Satellite Tour” WTA friends tell me. The Djoker was a major philanderer. It was part of his routine, just as Nadal kicks clay from his shoes, wipes sweat from three places, and bounces the ball a dozen times before he serves. It’s part of what they need to play their best. Novak’s wife caught him, put him on notice, and his tennis equilibrium has been in flux ever since. His life is out of balance. It’s the equivalent of Samson with a buzz cut. Djokavic is essentially the Tiger Woods of tennis.
