The day Novak became the people's champion.

That's why he lost. He needed crowd against him lol

After all these years, he became accustomed to hostile crowd.

The people’s champion? Please. The crowd just wanted more tennis. If Djoker cries during the trophy ceremony are people going to make fun of him like they did Fed in 2009?

There you go Novak fans. Sorry he lost the match. But he became the people's champion. All his life he wanted crowd support. I've never seen such crowd support for him.

Welcome the people's champion.
Really funny post!

Keep dreaming, but stay off the drugs though, ok?

It is the most irony i have seen.

When crowds were against him, he won.

When crowds were there for him, he blinked.

Some of you guys are really stretching here. People paid big money. They were behind Med because he was the underdog. Then when the third set got embarrassing (and Novak was suddenly the "underdog") the crowd started cheering ridiculously for him.

Those cheers were of desperation. They wanted more tennis.

If he keeps going I agree he'll be clearly beloved. Part of that is by default because nobody outside of Tsitsipas & Shapovalov is getting much traction. But the other part is people will recognize nobody will come close to Big 3.

Novak will win at least 1 more USO.

You can feel it in his words
That's all he ever wanted. Crowd support is off the charts. Not a bad way to go out. I don't think this loss will hurt him. He will sleep soundly.

He also had great support from the crowd for the RG 2016 final and he received a great ovation after the 2015 RG final
