After Aus Open Win, Novak Djokovic's 'Italian Accent' Becomes A Huge Hit On The Social Media

In the era where the likes of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were leaving everyone behind, Novak Djokovic undoubtedly stepped up his game to give the proven stars a run for their money and stake claim as one of the modern-day greats. His consistent performances on the big stage also helped him forge a partnership with Nadal and Federer as tennis' 'Big Three'.

But, apart from running past opponents with his aggressive baseline play, the Serbian star has also struck a chord with tennis fans with his sense of humour. Staying true to his nickname 'Djoker', the 31-year-old continues to be an exciting prospect for his antics both on and off the field.

Djokovic's 'Italian Accent' Wows All On Social Media© Reuters

His pun and wit were once again in full display during a media interaction following his Australian Open triumph over Nadal in the final. Justifying his World No. 1 ranking, Djokovic proved to be too good for his Spanish counterpart, securing a 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 win in the all-important clash at the Rod Laver Arena.

After winning his 15th Grand Slam title, a joyous Djokovic sent the press into hysterics by imitating an Italian journalist during the post-match media interaction. The Italian journalist was curious about Djokovic's thoughts on his record Australian Open haul. But, before the poor journo could complete his question, the Serbian interrupted midway to pull off a hilarious Italian accent while mocking him.

“Novak, congratulations. Seven Australian Opens, 15 Grand Slams...,” the Italian reporter began. Not too bad (with an Italian accent),” replied Djokovic as the press room burst into laughter.  The reporter quickly said: “Cannot complain.” Djokovic, with a wry smile, apologised saying, “Sorry but you're always like 'Okay, man, yeah (Italian accent)'.”

What a charming Champion ! !we love DJOKO ! !!

While his antics left everyone in splits, Djokovic's latest triumph is no joke. After beating Nadal in the final, Djokovic lifted his seventh Australian Open title, going clear of Federer and the legendary Roy Emerson in the list of most title wins in Melbourne Park. He also has a 100 per cent record in Australian Open final and a defeat-less streak in the tournament's history as a world no. 1.

Too funny! He is a loveable character! ð

When it comes to Grand Slam titles, Djokovic, following his Australian Open win, now has 15 to his name as he overhauled tennis legend Pete Sampras in the all-time list. He is now only behind Federer (20) and Nadal (17) in the all-time list of most Grand Slam title wins in men's singles.
