Novak Djokovic is conquering once again the worst of his Australian fans with another good campaign in Melbourne, where he has reached the semifinals of the first line of the year. Unfortunately, his father, Srdan, is not helping his son. He was filmed with the demonstrators supporting Putin.
Tennis Australia released the following statement:
: “A small group of people displayed inappropriate flags and symbols and threatened security guards following a match on Wednesday night and were evicted. One patron is now assisting police with unrelated matters.
Players and their teams have been briefed and reminded of the event policy regarding flags and symbols and to avoid any situation that has the potential to disrupt. We continue to work closely with event security and law enforcement agencies.”
