Novak Djokovic mocks Wimbledon crowd by wiping away ‘tears’ before winning semi-final; Watch

For a player whose name has been linked to Wimbledon and the famous Centre Court for over the last couple of years, Novak Djokovic would naturally anticipate having the support of the fans the entire match. However, this has not been the case as he has advanced to his 9th final and 8th consecutive at the SW19. The Centre Court crowd booed him throughout his first two matches, leading the Serb to respond with a strong statement. A similar incident occurred on Friday night during the semi-final match against Jannik Sinner, when he was not only booed but also cheered against. In response, the 36-year-old made two mocking gestures towards the crowd.

Sinner gave himself a chance to extend the match to a fourth and perhaps a potential fifth set when he managed two set-point opportunities in the 10th game of the third set. The crowd started supporting Sinner as Djokovic set to serve, partially because they expected the Italian to respond. In any case, Djokovic did not enjoy that at all.

The seven-time winner then fought back, saving break points and ultimately held serve, denying Sinner the huge chance. Djokovic was booed by the fans and after he held serve, he made an unpleasant gesture by pretending to cry as the boos followed him again.
