Points like that should be repeated, that spectator removed from match, and such cases wouldn't repeat in future.
Edit: and probably fined too, many laws in human society hold on bcs of strict fines

I am sure Djokovic fan never did this so I haven't got an opportunity :rolleyes:
You simply created this thread because it enabled Fed to win a point and the set. You wouldn't give a damn if it didn't help Fed.

So a stupid fan yelled, who cares? As you can see, you've got the outcome you wanted. Just give it a rest.

I kind of agree, but how are they going to identify the person/people who yelled in a large loud crowd?

Where have you been last 20 minutes, searching cases of Nole barbaric fans who started watching tennis from 2011 yelling on set/matchpoints ?
This is not normal and not fair play. If you say that it is ok bcs Tsitsipas won, well it is not. It is happening all the time, and ANY fan who does it should take consequences for that.

There are cameras all over. It is rather easy thing to do.
Are you saying that at any moment there's a camera filming every single sector of the stadium? I just read in an article about cameras on Center Court: "Most of the cameras are versatile and flit between filming the tennis and the crowd – they are never trained on the audience at all times even though it may feel that way when you watch the live broadcast."

Don't think it would be easy. They should definitely replay points like these though.

Maybe cameras are not focused now on spectators so much bcs there is no such rule or law that should require from them, but really, how hard can it be to implement it ? They are searching for celebrities all the time, for fans with flags and transparents, beautiful women, many many things....they can find heckler if they need to.

It was disgusting. Terrible. I agree it's a problem. People should be thrown out. That would set examples for other spectators.

I certainly don't think the majority of slam audiences are "huge tennis fans" though.

And for be fair, it affects both players most of the time.

I was happy Tsitsipas won the 2nd set, it was deserved and 1-1 felt right after the first two sets, regarding play and karma :)

It would require them spending a lot of money on cameras. Imagine how many the tournament needs to have to be able to monitor entire audiences on major courts at all time during matches?

I don't think so. Heck, even players themselves know exactly where from has yelling came, and often they can point to person who did it.
Sure, if they can identify the perpetrator, the person needs to be shown the way out. These matches are what players work so hard for, and in tennis the results can really depend on just a single point sometimes.
If you are as a spectator getting in the way of fair competition, you should be penalised.

Lol
It’s not the same.
The way Fed fans behave during matches is disgusting.
I was annoyed by Fedfans who said "Roger is terrible" over and over when Tsitsipas was playing great and making Federer sweat. I thought it was a tense and good fight between two players with quite entertaining game styles.

I saw no Tsitsi-hate, but I didn't follow the thread that closely. I actually saw most appreciation.

In every match Fed losing you can see the most vile comments about Fed, by Fed fans.

Apart from the fact that it was disgusting and is a real problem sometimes. How do you know he was a Fed fan? It could have affected Federer negatively too.
Probably is since it was yelled at Stefanos shot, but anyway, we have seen many times as @Azure implied above, that other players have problems with heckling even though they aren't playing against famous players.

Fed might have stopped thinking the line judge called Tsitsipas's shot out. That idiot might not even have been a fan of either. It doesnt matter I think.

Yes but yell came right after Fed made a swing. It disturbed Tsitsipas (as seen above) and Fed capitalised on it. In big scheme of things, it doesn't matter which flock that spectator belongs, as well as OP for that matter :sneaky: it is important that such behaviour has to stop and that some people have taken their fandome on whole other unhealthy level.

You are right, it happened just right after Federer hit the ball back. I think it disturbed both of them tho. People in the crowd should point at these idiots to help the security find them so they can throw them out of the stadium.

There was a yell again from crowd in another tiebreaker (4th set? ) calling Fed's shot out ( which it was) and Tsitsipas stopped in mid rally and challenged it.

So yeah, it's a problem... But few posters are Calling out solely Fed fans on this :rolleyes:... I would rather say the crowd was misbehaving rather than a particular bunch of fans... And idk how this problem can be solved.

Edit - anyways I liked how Tsits sarcastically thumbs upped the Guy who yelled during first set tiebreaker... he didn't loose his ****. Speaks volumes about him. (y)

Hopefully the fans did the right thing and administered a little "frontier justice" out in the parking lot following the match.

A fervent beating of the man within an inch of his life would easily prevent a recurrence.
