The first tennis racket of the world, Novak Djokovic, not without difficulty overcame the starting round of the US Open. It took the 34-year-old Serb 4 sets to defeat the 18-year-old Dane Holger Rune. But during the match, Djokovic had to confront not only Rune but also the stands, which actively supported Novak’s opponent. After the match, the first number of the rating expressed his attitude towards the US Open spectators.
Serbian tennis player commented on the behavior of the fans during the first round match of the US Open against Holger Rune. The stands fiercely supported the 18-year-old Dane and often chanted his name. This was one of the largest sports arenas and definitely the noisiest and most spectacular stadium in the tennis sport. Obviously, the athlete always wants the stands to support only him, but this is not always possible.
The match lasted 2 hours 16 minutes. For Novak, the atmosphere was not ideal. But he has been in these conditions before, so he knew how to deal with it and focused on himself. Later, the sportsmen shared that this wasn’t exactly a fair fight due to his opponent’s injury and seizures. After the match, men talked to each other in the locker room where Novak thanked Rune for the desperate fight with all his respect.
As a result, Serbian made it to the second round of the US Open tournament. Djokovic’s next opponent will be a Dutchman Scott Griekspoor.
