‘You can’t argue with him!’ – Novak Djokovic laughs about son’s honesty during Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic had joy in his eyes as he spoke about what it meant to have his son watch him open Centre Court for its 100th anniversary. 

The six-time champion at SW19 enjoyed a nice moment to start his press conference after advancing to the second round.

The four-set victory today takes Djokovic to 22 consecutive wins at Wimbledon, his last loss there coming in 2017.

After Djokovic shared a video on Instagram where his son Stephan takes a dug at him and his team, Tennishead asked the Serb if his son can maybe be too harsh with his dad, or if he just has the highest expectations of his incredibly successful father.

He responded: “You can’t argue with a child’s honesty and pure no-filter comments, right? 

“For him anyone playing in Wimbledon is a superhero. 

“He did not only direct that to me but the entire team. 

“For him, everyone in my team is playing in Wimbledon. 

“He saw these big guys that have muscles, my fitness coach, tennis coach (Ivanisevic), and he couldn’t understand how is it that we can’t fix a trampoline and we’re playing at Wimbledon. 

“It was a really funny, funny comment.”

Stefan was watching his father on Centre Court today as he got his Wimbledon title defence going with a win over Soonwoo Kwon. 

Djokovic continued: “It’s always special for me the feeling to play in front of my son. 

“I didn’t have too many opportunities in my life to have that kind of sensation and experience. 

“It’s always very unique.”

The triple defending champion will face Thanasi Kokkinakis in the second round.
