That was really cool, he thanked him too!

That was awesome. One of the coolest things I've ever seen in tennis.

That made my day

It was very snooker-like now that I think about it, the intimacy of a snooker venue has that type of interaction sometimes.

Troicki is a funny guy.

Ha ha, so that's what that was about; I wasn't sure yesterday.

There's also the video of a fan asking Troicki for a language lesson at the AO, and being escorted out of the arena as a result (warning: quite loud and fan is a complete buffoon): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDJOgQ19dJU&feature=player_detailpage#t=50s

I remember that point. It was very light hearted of Troicki to take his sugestion!

Djoker played along, but inside, I know he was ****ed :)

McEnroe even said as much. lol

I finally found out what the fan shouted.

His voice had too much echo in the stadium.

That reminded me of a Atlanta Hawks game a few years ago, to a very very small crowd. You could hear the players and the refs talking. During one quiet moment, a guy yelled out "we got next!" and half the players started laughing.

Youznhy just did the same thing today asking Andre Agassi what to do to win a point vs Federer
Agassi was like: "dunno"

A guy yelled at Murray to stop hitting dropshots in the match vs Ferrer.

I actually love this new trend where players interact with fans during a match. Feels like a comic book character breaking the 4th wall.

Soon it will be like in the NBA where players jump into the stands and start brawling with fans. You heard it here first.
