Djokovic slams Wimbledon crowd after being booed

11 July, 2018, 23:26 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Edmund had only won once in his previous five Wimbledon appearances

Djokovic saw chances go begging in the opener, but stepped things up in set two and deservedly levelled after repeatedly putting pressure on the Edmund serve.

"When I see Kyle during the year playing good tennis, he can easily play awesome tennis on grass also", coach Rosengren said.

"That is something he has to be very proud of".

World number 48 Hsieh's come-from-behind win leaves Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, world number 8, as the last Top 10 player still left in the tournament, reports Efe.

Edmund has so far appeared utterly unfazed about carrying the weight of home expectation at Wimbledon for the first time, and can take confidence from his last meeting with Djokovic in Madrid in May, when he claimed his first win in four against the Serbian.

Edmund could not avoid being broken in his next service game, though, and Djokovic served out the match with minimal fuss.

"Yeah of course it's on everywhere, everybody is singing, 'It's coming home, it's coming home'", he said.

Nishikori and the 15th-seeded Kyrgios, a former Wimbledon quarterfinalist, began their match on No. 1 Court only after 7 p.m. local time, meaning light was fading toward the end of the 1 1/2-hour match. "Sometimes we all forget the joy of playing".

Djokovic has twice before played a British opponent at Wimbledon, losing to Andy Murray in 2013 and beating James Ward in 2016. He is now scheduled to return to action on clay at the Croatia Open, where the tournament director is his agent Lawrence Frankopan, in a week's time before heading across the Atlantic for the North American hard-court swing culminating in the US Open.

Rosengren said: "He is in unbelievably good shape mentally". The forehand we know is a big weapon. I'm a human being like anybody else, I can feel the pressure as everybody else-,"said the 12-time major victor".

"I think you have to go in and not overplay just because Djokovic has 12 majors".

"Obviously he will want to know what's going on, you can't stop that".

"It's always an awesome experience, literally playing in the home of tennis". Just getting the opportunity to play on there is a massive privilege. "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". "There's a reason why you're there".

Djokovic was treated for what he hoped was only a minor knee injury during his second-round victory over Horacio Zeballos on Thursday.

"Those are the things obviously that people don't get to see or hear on the TV".

"It would be highly unlikely he's going to win this, unless Djokovic is hurt". Djokovic is playing better because grass I think suits his game at the moment, grass usually suits your game better when you're less confident because it's about staying alive in the points.
