Anyone who plays tennis (even at the recreational level) knows that applauding your opponent's shot is the easiest, most recommended way to take the blame for a lost point off your shoulders and flip the negative emotion into a positive one.

It is a ritual, similar to bouncing the ball before the serve. Djokovic is doing it all the time because it HELPS him, not because he is full of class.

Only players who do it sparingly really mean it.
