After a heated outburst, Novak Djokovic, enraged by Wimbledon, said, “It upsets me.”
During his third-round victory at Wimbledon on Friday, Novak Djokovic expressed his displeasure with the audience.
Novak Djokovic has revealed what prompted his on-court outburst after his Wimbledon third-round victory over Denis Kudla. Throughout his career, the world No. 1 has faced a lot of opposition from the fans.
During a far from smooth 6-4 6-3 7-6 win against the world No. 114, the Serb reacted violently to a part of the audience.
Throughout his career, Djokovic has failed to attract the same degree of support as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
He’s had to deal with a lot of rowdy onlookers who try to put him off.
His rage at the audience was on full display on Friday when he screamed at a group of fans who attempted to distract him.
“My reactions were explosive, probably more intense than they should have been,” the world No. 1 said, “but I had to get it out of my system and put things in their proper place.”
“Look, you know, these things happen in the heat of combat.
“On the court, you can let go of your emotions, stress, and anxiety.
“Yeah, sometimes you just need a little bit of help, and sometimes you just want to let everything go.
“That is exactly what occurred to me.”
With his victory on Friday, Djokovic became the first man to win at least 75 matches in each of the four Grand Slams.
When asked where he gets his drive for success from, the Serb attributed it to his difficult background in Serbia.
“Failure was never an option for me or my family; we had to find a method to afford the fundamental demands in order to survive,” he continued.
“I spent a lot of time in the mountains with wolves, and there’s wolf spirit there,” says the narrator. I’m not joking.”
On Monday, Djokovic will face Cristian Garin in the fourth round in his quest for a sixth Wimbledon crown.
