That part of Djokovic's character is very surprising. He comes across as smart, but he loses his cool far too many times in tense matches. Breaking rackets is fine, but ball kids should be off limits. You don't takeout your frustration on ball kids. I hope he apologised for that. It takes away from his great legacy.
Nice way to try to create a nothing-gate and spin this into something that it's not. He simply turned around to slam his racket on the court out of frustration, a ballboy happened to stand right there on the spot which is probably why he cut short the racket-smashing motion and turned away from the ballboy. There was no eye contact or communication between him and the ball boy... The umpire did not interpret this as him abusing the ballboy (or he would have reprimanded him) nor did the commentators watching it who only commented that Djokovic should be careful with the ballboy being so close.
Whataboutism (also known as whataboutery) is a variant of the tu quoque logical fallacy that attempts to discredit an opponent's position by charging them with hypocrisy without directly refuting or disproving their argument, which in the United States is particularly associated with Soviet and Russian propaganda. When criticisms were leveled at the Soviet Union during the Cold War, the Soviet response would often be "What about..." followed by an event in the Western world.
Djokovic didn't intend to do anything to ball boys. He was frustrated at himself. OTOH, Roger knew what he was doing when throwing those bottles and who will have to collect them. Ball boys are not some servants. :cuckoo:
I think Devvarman is surely exaggerating but still a hilarious comment nonetheless. Especially because back then his record vs Nadal...

We will continue to simulate the season with the second Grand Slam of 2020 - Roland Garros. The draw for the events will be completely randomized. Qualifiers are randomized as well and the WCs are chosen by me.

So Vatutin continued to play and after he lost the point he asked umpire to check the mark. It was out and the point was awarded to Vatutin.
What makes is interesting is that Brown loses his head like that and complains for a long time - after all he is a trickster himself. Remember this?
