Djoker comes out in dad’s support

sports Updated: Dec 20, 2010 00:09 IST

Serbia’s top tennis player Novak Djokovic has expressed support for his father’s initiative to topple the country’s tennis federation (TSS) leadership and the body's president Slobodan Zivojinovic.

Djokovic senior and Zivojinovic clashed after Serbia won their first Davis Cup title earlier this month with a 3-2 win over France in Belgrade.

“I’m really sorry that the situation is almost out of control but changes are inevitable,” world number three Djokovic said.

“The Tennis Association needs new people in order to finally build a national tennis centre and provide better conditions for young talents to progress. I have to say my father has no intention of taking any position in the TSS, but to present to all clubs the functioning of the concept he represents.”
