At the Australian Open, Novak Djokovic originally attempted to ignore a heckler, but eventually lost his cool and requested that the chair umpire exclude one spectator for being “drunk out of his mind” and “not on Rod Laver Arena to watch tennis.” Djokovic goes off on a heckler in the fourth set of his 6-1 6-7 (5) 6-2 6-0 victory over Enzo Couacaud.
“Can you help us get him out? entire evening.
What will you do to address the situation? What? Please respond. Are you kidding me? You already know who it is; he’s insanely inebriated and has been provoking nonstop since the beginning! He is merely trying to get inside my thoughts; he is not here to watch tennis.
What are you going to do about it, I ask you? What are you going to do about it now that you’ve heard him at least ten times and I’ve heard him fifty times? Why don’t you remove him from the arena?” According to Eurosport, Djokovic was heard informing the umpire.
After getting over the incident, Djokovic defeated Couacaud.
Even though Djokovic may have lost his composure in the fourth set, he still defeated Couacaud. During the second set, Djokovic, who was facing Couacaud for the first time, needed an off-court medical timeout due to a hamstring injury.
Even though the situation for Djokovic was not ideal, he managed to defeat Couacaud. “The game last night included a lot of activity. He should be commended for the struggle. His tennis was excellent, especially in the second set.
He successfully extended the game to four sets. I was able to respond well in the third and fourth despite the fact that we both experienced some medical timeouts and suffered a little. I enjoy performing at night sessions. Let’s continue it, “According to the ATP website, Djokovic stated after the game. In the third round of the Australian Open, Djokovic will face Grigor Dimitrov.
