Novak Djokovic was seen at the table with former commander Milan Jolovic, protagonist of the Srebrenica genocide, the massacre of thousands of Bosnian Muslims, and an episode that negatively made history of that country in 1995.
The photos of this lunch quickly went viral on social media and criticism for this situation has rained all over the world. Until now Nole has refused to comment on any details regarding this lunch. Jolovic was the commander of the Drina Wolves, the so-called 'Wolves of Drina' and was a very important character in this story as he saved the life of Mladic, the general who led the massacre and who was then relegated to life in prison for genocide and war crimes.
A situation certainly at the level of an unedifying image for the Serbian champion who in the past was exposed to criticism for the direct Instagram with his friend and little appreciated guru Chervin Jafarieh, a character considered excessive due to his use of particular theories.

Roger Federer: "Bjorn Borg can make the difference in Laver Cup"
Roger Federer was able to play the misery of 13 official matches in all of 2021, testifying to a physical condition far from the glories of the past.
His last appearance dates back to Wimbledon, where he managed to hit the quarter-finals thanks also to a not impossible scoreboard. After being clearly eliminated by Hubert Hurkacz, the Swiss phenomenon announced that he would not take part in the Tokyo Olympics due to a relapse in his right knee.
On the evening of Sunday 15 August, news came that King Roger would have operated on the same limb for the third time in the last year and a half. The surgery has already been performed and the 20-time Grand Slam champion started rehabilitation a few weeks ago.
The hope is to see him back on the pitch in 2022, but it is too early to say too much. This setback will not allow the former ATP number 1 to participate in the fourth edition of the Laver Cup, staged at the TD Garden in Boston in a few days.
During a meeting with one of his sponsors (Mercedes), the 40-year-old from Basel took stock of the upcoming start of the event. Federer said: "I think Team Europe is still the favorite, thanks largely to the presence of Olympic champion Alexander Zverev and US Open winner Daniil Medvedev.
If we analyze the singulars, we should start with a considerable advantage. As for indoor doubles, anything is possible. I believe there will be a great balance in that specialty." Team Europe - led by Bjorn Borg - took home all three editions so far (the tournament did not take place last year due to the pandemic).
Federer added: "It's amazing how strong the European selection has become in recent years. Even without being able to count on Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and me, our team has what it takes to win. We must not forget the presence of a leader like Bjorn Borg on our bench."
