    Not surprising really. His form has been poor and a world number 2 should never lose in the 2nd round.

    The articles I read said that people started to groan and a few booed in the third set when he was playing so badly. Then when he walked off there were a few jeers.

    I feel bad for him. I would never boo a player even if he was playing like my grandmother. I don't think it's very nice!

    It's stupid if it happened. Like it's his fault and he decided to play poorly just to screw them.

    ^^^LOL. I have seen guys like Safin get warnings for 'not trying' and 'losing on purpose'. I kid you not.

    I don't think it's nice to boo a player when they play poorly. I mean, they're probably disappointed/angry with themselves already, why add salt to the wound?

    However, I am one of the more... outspoken types of people, so I would boo the player if they did something inappropriate, but definitely not if they played poorly.

    People who boo players who play poorly are pathetic.

    Well, the thing is Djokovic has a reputation of throwing in the towel. Not so much by tanking the match but by more suspicious means (retiring, basically) or medical timeouts, etc. When it happens so much, and I think he's become the poster boy for this kind of behavior bc the other top players don't do this) fans stop giving you the benefit of the doubt. If Fed or Nadal was playing poorly I don't think anyone would think they weren't trying. With Djokovic you feel like he's given up.

    The one who should relax is you actually ,half of the posters here (except rabid fedfanatcs as you are obviously) already have you at ignore list . You are here 24/7 and whine about Novak and his success . He will be fine , nothing that dexametason-neomicin eye drops couldn 't cure in just few days:cool: , quite different from your case. as you need a serious psychiatrist review of your menhal health.

    This is setting precedence for everyone else on tour.

    Take a set off Novak and he will retire!
