The controversy which necessarily accompanied the disqualification of both Novak Djokovic in the US Open 2020 doesn’t sign to subside. The World number 1, that had been pursuing his fourth name in New York along with also the 18th Grand Slam, dropped his mind in his game of eighths against Pablo Carreno Busta allowing himself go into a gesture which cost him dearly.
After enduring a rest in the conclusion of this initial group, the scripted occurrence threw the ball backward accidentally hitting a bit judge. The incident, which was quite reminiscent of the episode that happened to Denis Shapovalov three decades back from the Davis Cup, headed into the (almost instantaneous ) disqualification, despite Djokovic having tried everything to convince the leaders of this championship of his great faith.
Serbian journalist Sasa Ozmo, quite near Nole, considers that the 17-time Grand Slam winner doesn’t get treatment appropriate to his own standing at the circuit by the worldwide media.
Ozmo on Novak Djokovic
“Many believe he was disadvantaged.
To know that, you need to find the big picture,” Sasa Ozmo informed Tages-Anzeiger Sport. “The Way Novak Djokovic is handled with the global media and occasionally by the Grand Slams doesn’t correspond with what he’s achieved in his profession” – he added.
“A spectacle suddenly happens to meRoger Federer slammed against Rafael from the Paris semifinals this past year, nearly got out the ball of anger in the scene,” he explained. “The audiences from the first rows were shocked since initially they believed he was shooting them.
However Federer did not need to answer a question about it at the media conference. Had Novak done it would just have been discussed about. Everything he’s always seen seriously,” Ozmo added. “This is the reason why many in Serbia have the impression he has been preventable in the US Open.
But anybody who takes a closer look in tennis understands that it had been a disqualification. No question. I think that it bothered him in the past,” said the journalist. “Through the years, he discovered a way to take care of it, to use it to his benefit.
We all know what the air was like in the 2015 US Open or in Wimbledon 2019 from Federer. I think when the match is finished he’d naturally have wanted more people to encourage him” Ozmo proceeded . “But throughout the match, that just makes him more determined. If he’s in style of’me against the world’, he’s quite hard to conquer”
