Some didn't like it

Spanish newspaper "Marca" and some of their readers were unhappy, to put it mild, about Novak Djokovic impersonations of Rafael Nadal. A number of insulting comments towards Novak and Serbia in general have been posted, but there were few normal people seeing it as it is - funny and refreshing. Rafa and Nole are actually good friends, Rafael came to Belgrade for Novak's birthday party earlier this year.

Maria Sharapova showed how silly was their attitude. She was "victim" of the same show that featured Nadal, yet she took place in the Novak's supporters section during the finals. "She said she's going to kill me", Novak joked, "Of course she accepted it in the right way. Of course she found it funny. Not offended". Boo Marca!

Robert De Niro and his wife watched Novak's last two matches from the same section. They even participated in the cheering decoration by wearing the appropriate t-shirts. During the semifinal, box formed Serbian flag with red, blue and white shirts, with De Niro in white line.

While we are on the subject, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic were appointed UNICEF Godwill Ambassadors.
