Brangelina has nothing on this couple. World, meet Djoicki – aka Novak Djokovic and Viktor Troicki. The BFFs are playing doubles together in Indian Wells (in the Quarterfinals now against Rohan Bopanna and Aisam Qureshi) and had to play each other in singles today. Nole won the match 6-0, 6-1.
Ouch. Can they still be friends?
Nole said of Viktor after the match: ”Viktor is one of my best friends, on and off the court, but one of us has to lose. It was tough playing him. He’s somebody I grew up with, was part of my team at the Davis Cup and in juniors.” Whew. The friendship will survive another day.
As they say in Serbian: Najbolji prijatelji zauvek.
(Translation: Best friends forever)
Ah, the tennis player’s version of the friendship necklace. Think he’ll give Nole half?
