Srdjan Djokovic has spoken openly about Federer in the past, previously claiming that the 20-time Grand Slam winner was “jealous” of the current world n ° 1.
Speaking to Serbian TV station K1, Srdjan spoke about the alleged attack on his son, which he said happened “about 15 years ago”.
“Federer attacked my son when he was still young, he was 18 or 19,” he said.
“I knew someone would be there who was better than him.
“So I said that [Federer] was a great champion, the best at the time.
“But as much as he is a great champion, Federer is not such a good man.”
No evidence was presented to support Srdjan’s claim.
Srdjan has hammered the media for what he claims to be attempts to “defamate” his son despite his incredible success in the game.
“Obviously the foreign media don’t have the best opinion of us and think we are constantly bothering them,” he said.
“To tell you the truth, I don’t want to be part of your twisted world.
“I’m sorry you don’t like Novak. I’m just telling you the truth. What should I do?
“They vilify him so much and say so many disgusting things about him it’s unbelievable.
“My answers are much clearer about how they treat this great champion, whom they will never have in this world again.”
