Volcanic tension between Norrie Cameroon and Novak Djokovci

He didn´t had that years ago. What can be the cause of that? Do you know?

It's called Bell's Palsy and is temporary for 90% of people. Djok has had it at least since 2020 and it is generally a neurological condition brought on by inflammation in the body.

Novak overreacted but hitting that smash so close to Novak looked like one of those dumbass things college tennis players do to gain the "edge" along with screaming C'MON after every other point they win.

Bell's palsy affects the facial nerve and the entire side of the face. Nothing is wrong with the rest of his face. An isolated ptosis is not Bell's palsy.

I didn't watch the match, so I can't speak to the general atmosphere out there.
On the point in question, it was odd that Novak turned his back like that, but it also certainly appeared that Norrie had all kinds of room to hit his overhead without it even grazing Novak.

Again not having watched the match, I'm a little surprised that Novak went into those details in the post-match presser. Now, he does express himself candidly and honestly, but he also leaves himself open to others critiquing him for some of the same things that he called out with Norrie. Hopefully, this blows over, as I'm generally not a fan of tennis controversies.
You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

Novak is quite known for doing these very same things, and you said it with a great deal of civility and restraint.

You are: Too good for TTW.

Not sure Novak is the right person to talk too much. He has lots of stuff going on; the madman roar, the boinking, the tactical grunts, the sarcastic thumbs up etc.

The overhead is fair play. Quitting a point isn't. Everyone in the locker room knows this.

Valid point for sure. I still think he kinda earned all his antics on the court. Obviously they work for his game.

Long story short: Novak always overreacts when he is hit in his body. He himself considers that move a sign of disrespect. He usually goes for the bodyshot when he is chasing for a dropshots, to cut an opponents angles. Norrie this time didn't try to cheat or disrespect the opponent which he usually does. So it's all blown up by the media, especially the British one.

Djokovic owes Norrie a public apology for not accepting Norrie's immediate apology.
Norrie smashed the ball to the middle, exactly as he should.
Djokovic has the choice of whether to stay and get hit, or commit to a side.
Pick a side you dumb pathetic hothead, any side.

It looked like Norrie aimed at him right before the shot that hit him

Djokovic made too much of a molehill! Didn't he hit Federer in one of the Wi finals? Federer was looking back, by that time Djokovic had his back turned to it. He didn't even see the play!

Djokovic got so angry that he decided to give up ownership of his tennis center.

Roddick has defended Norrie and had a sly dig at Djokovic.

“It’s fair play. Norrie has every right to do what he wants and Novak has every right to not like it,” he said. “He wasn’t breaking any rules. I’ve gotten in trouble for criticizing people for taking medical timeouts a little too often.”, Roddick added.

To be fair Roddick doesn't like Djokovic over the vaccine situation.
