Posing nude not in Djokovic's future

Defending champion Novak Djokovic finally was made to sweat at the Australian Open on Saturday — but only when asked if he would ever pose for the cameras without his clothes on.

Djokovic was exposed to the question in a postgame interview after tearing strips off a hobbling Nicolas Mahut to book his place in the fourth round.

The Serbian world No. 1 surrendered only two games as he cantered home in an hour and 14 minutes.

But he looked far less comfortable when asked if he would pose in his swimwear for Sports Illustrated, like some members of the women's tour, or even go naked.

"I will choose my next words very carefully," he said, according to AFP. "We should all have equal rights. But I am not thinking about that too much. I guess women are more attractive than we are. They have a lot more to show, I guess."

Djokovic was adamant, though, that swimwear would be the limit to his undressing.

"I'm not getting naked for anybody, except my girlfriend," he added.
