Srdjan Djokovic has been outspoken about Federer in the past, previously claiming that the 20-time Grand Slam winner was “jealous” of the current world No.1.
Speaking to Serbian TV network K1, Srdjan spoke about the alleged attack on his son, which he claims happened “about 15 years ago”.
“Federer attacked my son when he was still young, he was 18 or 19 years old,” he said.
“I knew someone would be there who would be better than him.
“So I said that [Federer] was a great champion, the best at the time.
“But as much as he is a great champion, Federer is not such a good man.”
No evidence was offered to substantiate Srdjan’s claim.
Srdjan hammered media outlets for what he claims are attempts to “defame” his son despite his incredible success in the game.
“It is obvious that foreign media outlets do not have the best opinion of us and think that we are constantly bothering them,” he said.
“To tell you the truth, I do not want to be part of your twisted world.
“I’m sorry you don’t like Novak. I just tell you the truth. What should I do?
“They defame him so much and say so many disgusting things about him that it is unbelievable.
“My answers are much clearer compared to how they treat this great champion, that they won’t have again in this world.”
