I guess with all the drama in this match, perhaps this small bit was missed but really what was the deal with Djokovic for the past 2 days? Did the pressure of getting the NCYGS get to him? Reacting like this over a time violation?
Apparently he managed to convince the umpire to remove the shot clock in the last set as well, although as you would expect Thiem nodded in agreement. Trying to gain an advantage whenever possible. Pretty bad behaviour from him all around, maybe it’s something personal as well because even for him his behaviour was a bit uncharacteristic.
