Djokovic cites Monica as an idol

http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

Djokovic has already put Serbia back on the tennis map. The nation touts a modest tennis tradition aside from Monica Seles, a nine-time Grand Slam champion who was in the crowd Sunday.

"I'm very happy about that because she was one of my idols when I was young," Djokovic said

Djokovic's game today was
Oh.my.goodness! I wish him the best. He certainly has the goods.

Good for him. I'm surprised he would admit to it publically; he has good taste.

sounds gay. Most straight guys wouldn't name a female as their idol growing up.

This may make me sound really ignorant/unknowledgeable, but how many Serbian male tennis stars have there been for him to look up to?

Re: Djokovic cites Monica as an idol

Well, he just loves his country. :-) For me as a Greek it's difficult to find an idol from my country as well.
Eleni Daniilidou is the highest rank Greek and Konstandios Economidis is ranked at about 100... uff...

If you see that someone from your country (obviously Serbia had its struggles...) can make it, you can hope that you'll achieve that, too once.

Sharapova, Jankovic, Zvonareva !
Kirilenko, Vesnina, Dokic, Bacsinszky, Jovanovski, Pironkova
Official Greek Guardian of the Maria Mafia & Don't Knock the Dok
Official Masseur of the Jelena Clinic
Djokovic, Davydenko, Tipsarevic, Wawrinka, Baghdatis, Gulbis, Troicki, Kyrgios

Why would be ashamed? Because she's a female tennis player. I wouldn't be ashamed. And I agree, good for him because you're right, it shows that he has various influences. Besides, Monica had as much aggression as any male player.

Re: Djokovic cites Monica as an idol

I think in this case you have to realize that Monica is more than just a tennis player in Serbia. She's more like a national hero.
