Novak Djokovic really isn’t hot on the New York heat. I just caught this clip of Nole getting all steamy about the shade right after his 6-3, 3-6, 2-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory over Victor Troicki on Tuesday. On court temps topped 100-degrees during the match.
Something tells me he doesn’t call his girlfriend, the lovely Jelena Ristic, “hot stuff.” She’s cool with it:
Djokovic was asked to elaborate on his comments in the pressroom (dirty bunch, those tennis reporters):
Q. You made a comment about sleeping with your girlfriend out on the court. What was that analogy to?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I don’t know. He asked me for the comparison of the feeling, what kind of feeling was it to feel the shade. The sun came down and I didn’t have any more heat, what kind of feeling was it. It just came up to me. It’s one of the best feelings, I guess, when you’re sleeping with your close one. So I compare it to that.
Q. Must have felt good.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: It felt unbelievable (smiling). Let’s get back to tennis now (laughter)
Novak’s getting his ultimate New York fantasy on Thursday – a night match!
