The kid is literally holding a sign that says "NOVAK PLEASE GIVE UR RACKET!". If he was cheering loud enough, no surprise Djok obliged.

😜this is a step in the right direction for Djokovic. He still has a long way to go before he’s loved on same level as Rafa or Federer.

I feel like Novak is more popular outside the West Like IIRC he actually has the most followers across all platforms than Fedal but it just doesn't seem like it because crowds don't like him in USA and Western Europe


DomWinchester

i feel that overall, Fedal is more popular internationally, but apparently the kids age group seems to like Novak a lot


SourGrapesFTW

It's more divided across cultures. ​ North America and Western Europe don't take kindly to Eastern Europeans, and that's really the big difference. I've seen it play out in so many different sports too, it is what it is.

early 90s kids like Fedal more, they remember sheer annihilation of field by Fedal. it's etched in memory. late 90s early 2000s kids are more open towards Novak.

no. It's because, Fedal started winning in 2004. while Novak, since 2011 *properly*. it takes a while in building reputation. 15 yrs ago, general public only read newspapers about who won slams in the morning. atp tournaments are not in everyone's radar. not everyone watches tennis but everyone read newspapers before. today it's very different cause of Fb/Insta


Slayy35

Nah it's not just that. Federer was MEGA popular in 2004 and Djokovic has won a lot more shit in the past 11 years than Fed had in 2003-2004. Nadal also became super popular after only a couple years. So most people settled on those 2 early on and are still mad Djokovic came over and started beating them a lot the past decade.


madlama4

yes because he has a *charm* about him. it's what makes him so marketable.


Dafuqyoutalkingabout

Nadal has more followers that him on insta, Twitter and FB, Federer has more followers than him on Twitter and FB (Novak has a few hundred thousand more on Instagram) what other platforms are you referring to? Nadal - 46.5m Federer - 41.6m Djokovic- 30.7m


riquelm

Nadal has more followers than Fed and Novak partly because Spain has 50m citizens while Serbia and Switzerland have around 7-8m.


SerbLing

Spanish speaking world is wayyyy bigger than 50m


Dafuqyoutalkingabout

That wasn’t the assignment the OP set with “he (Novak) has most followers across all platforms” lol

Rafa goat

Yes, but if you look at it by geography outside of Europe and North America, it should be more even.


Dafuqyoutalkingabout

You have stats to back that up?

Aww the kid’s reaction you can tell how much it means to him


White_Nothing

In an ironic twist of fate that kid will use that same racket to defeat Djokovic in the 2032 Wimbledon final.

DJOKOVIC GOAT


DomWinchester

it's interesting to see the kid who's not given the racket also cry hhaha


SourGrapesFTW

His brother probably? The sign said "give US the racket" right?

Lol when I saw this sign in the crowd I was like "Man this guy actually wasted time making this, as if he's going to get the racket lol" Welp, time to start making em myself.


MeatTornado25

See I would give it to someone right next to him who didn't bring a sign like that out of spite. Then again I'm also a dick.

When I saw the sign I was shit talking the time waste of making it. Fuck me right lmao


MeatTornado25

Really annoys me, but still better than the animals in the first row that SCREAM for athletes to throw them their sweaty wristbands or to take a selfie or whatever.


34TH_ST_BROADWAY

This is awesome. Novak is a complicated person.
