Novak Djokovic's victory over Holger Rune at Wimbledon was marred by controversy, as the Serbian superstar accused some fans of disrespectfully booing him throughout the match. Despite Rune's explanation that the chants were actually cheers for his name, Djokovic remained unconvinced.

"To all those people who have chosen to disrespect a player, in this case, me, have a good night," Djokovic said following the match. "I know they were cheering for Rune, but that's an excuse to also boo. Listen, I've been on the tour for more than 20 years, so trust me, I know all the tricks."

Djokovic's comments sparked a debate on social media, with some fans defending the crowd's right to express their opinions, while others condemned the booing as disrespectful.

"It's a shame that some fans would choose to boo a player who is simply trying to do his job," said one fan on Twitter. "Djokovic is one of the greatest players of all time, and he deserves to be treated with respect."

"The crowd has the right to cheer for whoever they want," said another fan. "If they don't like Djokovic, they should be able to boo him. It's part of the game."

The incident also brought back memories of the 2021 U.S. Open, where Djokovic was booed by the crowd during his final match against Daniil Medvedev. Djokovic ultimately lost the match, and some fans speculated that the booing may have contributed to his defeat.

"I've played in a much more hostile environment, trust me," Djokovic said after his victory over Rune. "You guys can't touch me."

Despite the controversy, Djokovic remains focused on his goal of winning a fourth French Open title. He will face Alex de Minaur in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.
