Djokovic blasts 'whistling, coughing' Wimbledon crowd

Klahn was unable to force a break point on Edmund's serve as the British No 1 raced to victory

Klahn was unable to force a break point on Edmund's serve as the British No 1 raced to victory

Novak Djokovic blasted Wimbledon's Centre Court crowd on Saturday, claiming fans "whistled and coughed" as he prepared to serve, insisting he deserves better treatment.

The occasion nearly certainly contributed to the fevered atmosphere, which was fuelled further by Edmund winning the opening set before Djokovic fought back to win 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-4. The British No 1's camp had hoped to avoid pre-match distractions from England's World Cup quarter-final with Sweden.

Djokovic was furious when he was denied a break of serve in the seventh game of the fourth set on Centre Court when the ball bounced twice before Edmund hit what was ruled a victor. I thought the crowd's reaction after that was quite unnecessary.

"My interaction with the crowd, I thought had good things and not that great things". I played him in the Olympic Games. It has been harder to win the big events, but it makes those victories that much better.' Interviewed by BBC after his Wimbledon withdrawal due to a hip injury, Murray also spoke about his next plans: 'I think I will make changes to my schedule and things to try and look after my body better.

Former world number one Djokovic, who won Wimbledon in 2011, 2014 and 2015, has ended Britain's challenge at this year's tournament, with Edmund the last of the 12 home players in the singles.

Losing against them and being able to spend time on the court with them has taught me a lot. "That's something that I can tolerate for a little bit, but I'm going to show that I'm present, as well, that they can't do whatever they feel like doing". "Obviously they support their player", he said. I don't really know what to say.

Mahershala Ali , Liev Schreiber , Brian Tyree Henry , and Lily Tomlin are also lending their voices to supporting roles. It will be interesting to see how many other Spider-Men will be swinging around Spider-Verse.

Djokovic said: "Kyle is a very nice guy". We get along very well.

"It was quite a odd situation, to be honest", said Djokovic of the incident which happened right in front of umpire Jake Garner.

"If you hit it with the frame, it's supposed to kind of slow down the trajectory of the ball".

Edmund added: "You need television to see it". If in real life it's hard to tell, then it's hard to tell for me when I'm scrambling.

The first match on Centre Court will begin at 1pm, while England's game will kick off at 3pm. Not too much in terms of margins. "I am looking forward to a second week of a Slam". But easier said than done when you're in rallies.
