The head in sand approach

sports Updated: May 25, 2013 00:10 IST

Despite the popularity of social media and the widespread presence of traditional media, Novak Djokovic appeared to believe he could be spared the unbearable truth of discovering who his second-round opponent at the French Open might be.

Just before his pre-tournament conference at Roland Garros on Friday, the moderator announced: “Novak has requested he would like to answer only questions about his first-round opponent, nothing else to do with the draw at all, top half, bottom half, and he’s asked his team not to mention anything about the draw, either. f you could respect that request. Thank you very much.”
