Novak Djokovic spoke about the Srdjan Djokovic flag controvery that apparently saw him pose with fans supporting the War in Russia.
Srdjan Djokovic categorically came out against the war today by pointing out his own lived experience with war and Djokovic confirmed what his father said. The Serbian addressed the situation following his win over Tommy Paul and he said:
"My father, my whole family, and myself have been through several wars during the '90s. As my father put in a statement, we are against war, we never will support any violence or any war. We know how devastating that is for the family and for people in any country that is going through war."

Srdjan Djokovic didn't watch his son play against Paul after the most recent incident. Djokovic then explained that his father had been thanking fan for the support and that's all:
"My father has been going after every single match to meet with my fans at the main square here in Australian Open, to thank them for the support, to be with them, pay them respect, and make photos. The photo that he made, he was passing through. I heard what he said in the video. He said, 'Cheers'. Unfortunately, some of the media have interpreted that in a really wrong way."
