Will Djokovic now find all the love that he so desperately seeks from the crowds? Or will he continue to beg them for more?
Hopefully not. I still want to be fan of the „villain“ who’s upsetting every Fedal fan on this planet. This hate is earned the hard but best way
After the way he behaved at the end of his QF many tennis fans will always be uncomfortable with him. It’s his fault as he always ends up doing something ridiculous.
I think he knows he has a HUGE fanbase, just not as big as Fedal, and that's OK. People are fickle. Look at this forum man. All we do is throw insults at the players who are working day and night to become better, yes even the next gen. All this from our couches lol. People will always judge others around them, doesn't mean that it's importantSadly we rarely find what we seek. Instead we must look in front of us, open our eyes, and embrace what stands before us. Nole has plenty of love around him; more than any human could ever need. All he has to do is look.

C'mon, he had genuine support today from the crowd. Same at the AO earlier this year. Just coz he isn't as popular as Fedal globally, it doesn't mean he doesn't have his own large (and growing) fanbase.
But why does he continue to beg the crowd for it? God forbid that they might be cheering more for the other player.C'mon, he had genuine support today from the crowd.

Wimbledon crowd has tended to be very lukewarm towards him, USO crowd sometimes outright boorish. But he has managed to win, nevertheless, against the crowd fave several times. I think that respect will flow his way, as grudging as might be from the more extreme and partisan of fans.
Greatness deserves to be respected, applauded. Even if the crowd doesn't "love" him more than the opponent, they would respect him- or should, if they really appreciate the game and greatness. Personally, I think Wimbledon and USO crowds WILL gradually come around too, though perhaps not all that fervently. But that's ok. Novak can win anyway. Lack of respect from the crowd reflects poorly on them, not on him.
Where did he "beg" for anything? Plenty of other players also ask the crowd to cheer and buoy the atmosphere. Why does every single tangential thing he does have to be inspected and analysed , from how he celebrates victories, to how he gestures to the crowd to cheer?But why does he continue to beg the crowd for it?

Well....you choose not to hear or see the plaudits, that's on you. I suggest you read the papers tomorrow? See the buzz on social media? How you can claim his achievement is NOT being talked about is stunning. Lashes of sour grapes.LOL. People are just hating him more it seems like. He managed something no one could do since Laver today and you could hear a mouse fart cheese in France
