Djokovic unfazed by fan reports
Novak Djokovic has denied suggestions that claim he is not supported when he faces Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal in major finals.
The Serbian was booed on occasions at the recent Australian Open and angered some fans when he argued with the umpire during his win over Dominic Thiem in Melbourne.
In recent months, rumours have claimed Djokovic has lost the love of some fans when he clashes with his famous rivals, but the 32-year-old says he still feels like he has the backing of the crowd, even when he plays Swiss ace Federer and the 'King Of Clay' Nadal.
When speaking to reporters in Belgrade, he said: "I've read a lot of stuff suggesting that I am disliked, but I really don't have that impression, especially off-court.
"Even if that was true, why would I want to add fuel to the fire?
"I don't want to stir up negative emotions. I have no ill feelings for people who don't support me. Having said that, I am not proud of my occasional reactions on the court as my passion gets the better of my self-control at times.
"I will always admit that I do make mistakes and I always try to learn from them. You reap what you sow and it is never my intention to generate bad energy."
