Novak went nuts after his win over Roddick last night, and I don’t think it was just because he earned a spot in the U.S. Open Semi-final. Here he is:
Novak backed down from these angry statements in his post-match presser, but the man obviously took Roddick’s earlier joking to the press about the Serb’s “16 injuries,” including “SARS” and “Anthrax” quite personally. But it’s strange that Novak wanted to bring the crowd into it – they were cheering for Roddick because he was the American, Novak, not because they care about your injury drama! Geeze, self-obsessed, much? But in the end you gotta hand it to the Serb, because his anger helped him beat Andy convincingly. (But seriously, where were those injuries that you were complaining so much about yesterday, Novak?)
I think the trash talking began earlier last week, way before Andy’s statements about Novak’s trainer time out extravaganza against Tommy Robredo. Here are Andy and Novak engaging in some macho posturing at Arthur Ashe Kids Day:
What do you all make of this? I for one, love the drama!
