‘Oh f*** off,’ Johanna Konta said in response to Novak Djokovic’s request.
According to newly discovered accounts, JOHANNA KONTA gave a scathing response when Novak Djokovic asked to try the British tennis star’s cooking.
Konta, the former World No. 4, will appear on ITV’s ‘James Martin’s Saturday Morning’ from 9:30 a.m. The show features television chef James Martin preparing weekend-friendly recipes and imparting cooking tips to special celebrity guests and viewers at home.
This week, the chef will be cooking alongside Konta, and the two will be sampling recipes from Lesley Waters and Andres Alemany.
Konta is no stranger to the kitchen, as the former British No. 1 is well-known in the tennis world for his culinary skills.
She even cooked roast dinners, pork belly, and steaks with homemade sauce for her photographer husband Jackson Wade during the first coronavirus lockdown.
During the 2018 Italian Open, however, Djokovic asked Konta to try some of her food, and the Briton was harsh in her response.
According to the New York Times, Djokovic overheard Konta discussing baking with the press.
“Can I experience your cooking one day?” the World Number One inquired.
“To be fair, my parents and boyfriend say it’s good, so they’re a little biased,” Konta said.
“However, I’ll bring some things in.”
“Please, at Wimbledon,” Djokovic said. “I need to know what you’re allergic to or don’t like,” Konta responded.
“[I like] anything that is gluten-free, dairy-free, or sugar-free,” the Serbian said.
“F*** off,” Konta said angrily. “I’ll make it work.”
Konta, one of the most successful British tennis players in modern history, announced her retirement from the sport in December, at the age of 30.
She was the first British woman to reach a grand slam quarter final in more than 30 years, and she reached three semi finals in total, including one at Wimbledon in 2017.
She married Mr Wade only a few weeks after she retired from tennis.
In the meantime, Djokovic made headlines this week after his visa to enter Australia was unexpectedly revoked upon his arrival in Melbourne.
The Serbian, who won the Australian Open last year, was held in the airport for several hours before border officials told him he didn’t meet entry requirements.
Djokovic has not discussed his vaccination status this year, but he did last year.
