The drinking mystery surrounding Novak Djokovic (35) is making waves on Twitter. Now his wife Jelena joins the discussion.
Jelena Djokovic defends her husband Novak on Twitter.
Novak Djokovic’s drinking bottles are a regular topic, most recently at the Masters tournament in Paris. Djokovic’s physio Ulises Badio is filmed mixing a drink that finds its way to his protégé via the ball girl.
No one knows exactly what is in the bottle. Novak once jokingly referred to a “magic potion”. The fact that Djokovic’s camp has not provided any serious answers leaves room for speculation and implicit accusations. The recording is broken down into individual parts in the tennis world.
“body language is weird”
“I called for more and more transparency in sports drinks, but I didn’t think there was anything wrong with that. But damn, the body language in this video is weird. What does the Djokovic team think they have to hide?” writes American investigative journalist Ben Rothenberg on Twitter.
Apparently, the speculation is getting on the nerves of Djokovic’s wife Jelena. “He (Novak) will talk about it when he’s ready,” he joins the conversation on Twitter. “People want to force him to talk about something he’s not ready to talk about. Just because they are impatient. That’s bullshit. You have to question yourself more. Not everything is immediately controversial, it can also be private. Is it still allowed?”
Jelena Djokovic seems to know exclusively why someone with nothing to hide reacts so violently to speculation. (cm)
