Vlade Divac Says Novak Djokovic Destroyed His Racquets With A Saw After The Olympics

That's according to Drop Shot Dispatch, which translated a report from Vesti Online. Divac, the former NBA player, is now the president of the Serbian Olympic Committee. He was critical of the performance of Serbia's athletes at the recent Olympics, though he did exempt swimmer Milorad Cavic and Djokovic, since they both frequently compete at such a high level.

Divac also said Djokovic, who failed to medal after losing to Andy Murray in a semifinal and then to Juan Martin Del Potro in the bronze-medal match, personally apologized to him:

Divac said, "I never saw anyone have such energy to fight for a medal for Serbia. It is contagious. After the match I came to him. You know what he was doing? He was so miserable, he was cutting up his racquets with a saw. That is not someone who doesn't care about the result."

Meh. I guess.
