Novak Djokovic angered by the treatment that he got by the spectators when he played


Novak DjokovicNovak Djokovic - Novak Djokovic is angered by the behavior of a handful of spectators at Wimbledon. Djokovic assessed the audience are really gone too far. Djokovic's anger overflowed when he defeated Britain's Kyle Edmund in the third round of Wimbledon on Saturday, July 7th 2018, with the score of 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, and 6-4.

Faced with the host tennis player, Djokovic was aware that the audience will give great support to Edmund. However, the Serb did not expect to be mocked oftenly by a handful of spectators.

One of Djokovic's highlighted moments was when he was fouled after being warned by the referee for a time violation in the third set. Djokovic called the audience's behavior this time was the worst as long as he played at Wimbledon.

"The atmosphere is like a Davis Cup, I certainly know they will support Kyle, but they are often a bit unfair to me, as that was what happened" Djokovic told Reuters.

"I think the reaction of the audience after that (time violation) is not necessary. Some people pretend to cough and whistle when I bounce the ball (before service) roughly until the end of the game" added the former world number one. "Things like that certainly cannot be seen or heard by people watching on TV I just think it is not necessary" said Djokovic.

According Djokovic, the audience treated him better when he faced Andy Murray in the final of the 2012 Olympics and Wimbledon 2013 held at the same place.
