Djokovic, 35, insisted his father had “no intention of supporting any war initiative”. Djokovic said after their semifinal match, “I saw as everyone else saw what happened and it’s unfortunate that the misinterpretation of what happened has risen to such a high level. Of course I’m aware of that.” I didn’t know about it until last night. And then of course I wasn’t happy to see it. My father, my whole family has been through many wars. As my father made a statement, we are against war. We will never support any violence or war.”
