After becoming the first man in history to win a seventh Australian Open title, Novak Djokovic had reporters in hysterics during his post-match press conference.

 

Ubitennis founder Ubaldo Scanagatta asked the world No.1 if he was surprised that Rafael Nadal was unable to trouble him on his serve throughout the first set. However, five words into Scanagatta’s question, Djokovic interrupted by saying ‘not too bad‘ in an Italian accent. Poking fun at his strong Italian accent, which prompted an eruption of laughter within the media room. Including the director of Ubitennis himself.

It is not the first time Scanagatta has been involved in a hilarious encounter at this year’s Australian Open. Shortly after Nadal’s first round win over James Duckworth, he was caught having a snooze during the press conference of the world No.2. Prompting a hilarious exchange between the two.

“I had slept only three hours the night before and it had already been a very stressful day – Ubaldo said after the curious “incident” – so I dozed off a little. I was sitting next to Benito Barbadillo, Nadal’s agent, someone Rafa looks at very frequently during press conferences”.

Scanagatta is one of the most well-known journalists in the world of tennis. In a career that has spanned over decades, he has reported live from over 150 Grand Slams, 7 Olympic Games, 4 America’s Cup and the Swimming World Championships!

It is certainly never dull when the Italian journalist is present at tournaments!

Her only loss to the Romanian was during the round-robin stage at the 2014 WTA Finals. At the time, it was her heaviest defeat on the tour since 1998.
