Boos to Djokovic, who addressed the Paris public


Boos to Djokovic, who addressed the Paris public

Novak Djokovic He is the current champion at Roland Garros, he has won the ‘indoor’ ATP Masters 1000 in Paris six times. These are achievements that are part of his status as a sports legend and he has yet to close his account at the age of 36.

The world number one was not spared, however, from the strange crowd that filled the headquarters of Paris-Bercy, in a stadium now named Accor Arena because of the sponsorship.

Many players have suffered from this. Carlos Alcaraz can attest to how an 18-year-old boy ended up crying when he didn’t understand the extreme hate from a fan who overdid his attempt to push one of his own, the Frenchman. Hugo Gaston.

When there is a Frenchman on the court, the stadium becomes a pressure cooker, a Davis Cup multiplied and brought to the ATP Tour. If a Frenchman doesn’t move around the court, the stands won’t be quiet either. It is inherently noisy and annoying.

The Russian Daniel Medvedev He has struggled with this hobby several times, to which he said goodbye this week with a comb.

It didn’t go that far Novak Djokovic, but there was the usual scuffle in the stands. It was not normal for him to boo the Serbian when he sought medical help after losing the first set. Maybe someone thought Serbian would be erased.

Far from it, he battled through a gray day to beat the Dutchman 4-6, 7-6 (2) and 6-4 Tallon Griekspoor in the round of 16 matches. It was difficult for him to decide the match. At the limit, aware that he lacked much inspiration, wearing thrifty overalls, Djokovic had the crowd applauding when he committed an eighth double fault that meant a ‘break’ at 4-4 in the third set.

‘Nole’ understood that the noise made the delivery difficult, again. The boos grew louder. The tennis player was not scared, he asked for more. Also when he was about to serve and many did not move. “More, more, more.” “More, more, more,” said Djokovic as the chair umpire, the Frenchman Aurelie Tourtetried to regain the calm so he could prepare to bring Griekspoor out.

Matters were put to rest as Djokovic won eight straight points to end the match in his favour. What did the dignitaries expect, who applauded and celebrated their classification. Everyone was relaxed after two and a half hours of intense tension.
