Djokovic showed displeasure on audience behavior

Novak Djokovic has expressed displeasure over the visitors coming to watch the match at Wimbledon Center Court. Djokovic has expressed his displeasure over the behavior of the audience sitting in the center court during the match, when he was playing the match in the grass court.

A section of the spectators sitting around the court was whistling loud and repeatedly coughing. Which led Djokovic to the distraction. Djokovic defeated Kyle Edmund 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4, and Kyle was one of the strongest contenders for the title of this tournament.

When Djokovic was given foul for taking overtime to serve the ball several times, many people from the audience sitting around started to react to this.

Djokovic, the former World No. 1 said that “I thought the crowd’s reaction was quite unnecessary. A couple of guys pretending they were coughing and whistling while I was bouncing the ball more or less to the end of the match at that end where I received the time violation,”

“Those are the things obviously that people don’t get to see or hear on the TV. I just think it’s not necessary. That’s what I didn’t like.”

“If you were in my position, you would probably understand,” he added.

He also added that “I’m a human being like anybody else, I can feel the pressure as everybody else.”

“My interaction with the crowd, I thought had good things and not that great things. I just reacted the way I thought it was fair, the way they reacted to me.”

3 Times Wimbledon Winner:

It’s noteworthy that Novak has won the Wimbledon title three times before. He is now eying for his 4th grass court grand slam here. This is the 44th time that Djokovic has reached into the quarter-finals of any grand slam tournament.
