Del Potro and the crowd are a disgrace

Agree 100%, their attempts at trying to un-nerve the biggest doper, benificiary of slowed-courts and tailor-made cake-walk draws sucks!

2 phenomenal tennis players, each with their own supporters leads to a discussion like the present one. Put Ramos in the umpire's chair and it gets more interesting as the rules will have to be observed rather than ignored.

I disagree with the title. I don't see how Delpo can be lumped in with the ugliness of the crowd. He's just trying to win a grand slam.
Don’t you see those drunk fools up in that box? All his friends he payed to make Djokovic nervous

Don't think he payed them, but they are pretty repulsive with cheering like it's Davis Cup or football game.

Time-wasting tactics, bias against the Serbian player, and a disgusting crowd that, year after year, does this ********. The US Open is the worst Grand Slam out of the 4, I’m sorry.
Agree.

But, crowd is fine on other masters tournaments in the US. Its only crowd at the US open that is bad every year.

Everything is fair so far.
Crowd is loud and there are several times of Djokovic’s split second over 25 sec. limit but it can be understandable.
When crowd is quiet, Djokovic serves within 25 seconds.
Just let them play the match instead of another controversy.
So far she is doing good job.

He didn't pay them. They paid their own way and there's exactly 12 of them. I really don't think they're the big issue.

Dealing with the crowd is part of being an athlete. Everyone needs to stop crying.
BS. This is over the top. Also, this type of situation does not exist anywhere else. You only got racuous, out of line crowds like this in team sports usually, it's a lot for one player to take when it's a whole stadium against them. And US Open is very bad even by bad tennis crowd standards

Match would suck if everyone was quiet. Novak seems to deal with it just fine if you ask me. Djokovic made his bed a long time ago by being a d*ck and they haven't forgotten it. Foolish to be outspoken about Roddick in NY. He asked for it.

Fair enough, I'm sure that contributed to it. It's their right to root for whoever they want but the jeering and stuff is a bit much. Just my opinion

How about if you like Djokovic, you buy tickets and cheer for him instead of watching with the devil on your shoulder?

Agree. This is par for the course in many sports and that's just how it is, but in tennis there is an expectation of respect from the crowd and the New York crowd is out of line.
