Djokovic booed after Wimbledon win

By Daily Sports Nigeria on July 9, 2024

Novak Djokovic has accused Wimbledon fans of “disrespect” after claiming he was booed during his win over Holger Rune on Monday.

According to Sky sports, the 37-year-old, a seven-time winner at Wimbledon, pursed his lips in the direction of the Centre Court fans after winning a tight second set vs 21-year-old Dane Rune, en route to a straight sets 6-3 6-4 6-2 victory to book his place in the quarter-finals.

A bizarre courtside interview followed:

“To all the fans that have respect and stayed here late tonight, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart – I appreciate it,” Djokovic said.

“And to all the people that chose to disrespect a great player, in this case me, have a gooooood night.

“I don’t accept it. I know they were cheering for Rune, but that’s an excuse to also boo

He said he has been on the tour for more than 20 years, claiming to know all the tricks and how it works.

“It’s fine. I will focus on the respectful people that pay the ticket to come and watch tonight, that love tennis and appreciate the effort that the players put in here.

“I’ve played in much more hostile environments, trust me. You guys can’t touch me,” he said
