Djokovic gets wax figure in native Serbia

JAGODINA, Serbia (AP) -- Novak Djokovic has met his match.

The Australian Open champion was in the central Serbian town of Jagodina on Thursday to attend the unveiling of his likeness at a wax museum.

Djokovic didn't speak to reporters at the museum. Serbian media reported that the top-ranked player later traveled south to a ski resort on Mt. Kopaonik.

Djokovic is sitting out Serbia's Davis Cup match against Sweden to rest after winning in Melbourne. He led Serbia to its first Davis Cup title in 2010.

That win helped propel him to a 70-6 record, winning three of four Grand Slam titles in 2011.
