Vlade Divac was rooting on Novak Djokovic in Australian Open final

Hip-hop mogul, actor and that taking advocate Diddy was in Novak Djokovic's player's box during his epic five-set victory over Roger Federer in the U.S. Open semifinals. When it was learned that another rap star, Kanye West, would be in Melbourne over the weekend performing at a concert, inquiring minds (OK, just me) wondered if Djokovic would be getting cheered on by Mr. West. He was at Djokovic's French Open semifinal match, after all.

Kanye wasn't there, but Djokovic had other star power watching him instead: Former NBA All-Star, and Serbian basketball legend, Vlade Divac. The two are sporting ambassadors for their native country. Divac is the president of the nation's Olympic committee. Something tells me Nole will be earning a berth on that squad later this year.

Though Divac's presence wasn't immediately felt on the court, if you see Djokovic flop in the middle of a point, now you'll know why.
