Among the top three tennis giants, although Djokovic is currently ranked first in the world and occupying the throne of the world's king, Federer and Nadal have more supporters than Djokovic. And this is why Djokovic will get a boo after winning.


After all, the Big Three each maintain an unprecedented 20 Grand Slam titles.This time, Nadal and Federer chose to retire from the U.S. Open, indicating that Djokovic is missing two powerful rivals. As long as he wins the title again, he will become the first tennis player to take all of a single season after the German player Steffi Graf in 1988. The "Grand Slam of the Year" legend of the tournament, and 21 Grand Slam men's singles champions will also break the "Big Three" situation in tennis and become the first person in history.


It’s just that the local New York fans seem to be unfriendly to the controversial king of tennis. This campaign frequently cheered for the young Rune, and there were also boos suspected of targeting Djokovic, "To be honest, I don’t know what they are shouting. Maybe it’s cheering, I don’t know the actual situation, but it’s really not an ideal atmosphere. Fortunately, I’ve got used to it a long time ago, and I’ve learned how to deal with it.”


Qiao Shuai emphasized that as a professional player, it is impossible to ask all the audience to support, "I have always focused on myself, tried to stay engaged, and at the same time played the best match possible.


This is what I can do." Even the legendary tennis player Chris Evert couldn't stand it, and jumped out to speak for Djokovic, "This is very sad. His amazing achievements deserve more support. Some fans are very excited when he loses points or makes a mistake. This is not right."
