According to a men’s tennis forum page, a reddit user and a YouTube video description, Novak Djokovic shouted a vulgarity at the crowd during his second round match against Grigor Dimitrov at the Madrid Open.
Since the alleged statement of “Now you
suck lick my d**k” apparently was shouted by Djokovic in Serbian, his native tongue, this lowly blogger cannot say for certain if that is in fact what the No. 1 men’s tennis player in the world shouted at the crowd.
What I can state, however, that Djokovic did lose the match to Dimitrov, the world’s No. 28-ranked player, 7-6 (8-6) 6-7 (8-10) 6-3 and that BBC Sports reports that the crowd was extremely pro-Dimitrov, chanting his name throughout the match.
Video of the alleged vulgarity, which appears to occur after Djokovic wins the second set in a tiebreaker:
So, the question remains, anyone out there who speaks Serbian and can translate what Novak Djokovic said to the crowd? We wait with bated breath.
