Djokovic also addressed the crowd as he was booed when he clapped them after getting broken on a double fault to level at 4-4 in the decider. The top seed didn’t lost another point after the incident, breaking and serving out the match to love.
“I don’t know, what do you think?” the 24-time Major champion said when asked whether the crowd gave him a boost. “When I asked them to boo a bit more then I won eight points in a row so I guess that was good. Was it me doing it on purpose or the public, what do you think? Equal? Well I completely disagree with you. I think I didn’t do anything to provoke the public, absolutely anything. But it is what it is.”
Asked whether the Parisian fans were special, Djokovic smiled and replied: “That’s a good word, very special, yeah. Very, very special. It’s very special.”
