What's wrong Novak? Rain bothering you so much that you have to berate an umpire? Sad to see. Where's the respect for our fellow officials? Would Novak have been all pissy if he had just served out the match right then and there instead of being broken by American Taylor Fritz? I would guess probably not!
At least Novak only yelled at the official this time. You can hear the fear in the umpires voice he's so scared. Probably afraid Novak was going to resort to an act of violence like at the US Open last year.
Djokovic got his way in the end and had the match stopped for a little while. When play resumed he pulled out the 2nd set to take down the American Fritz.
Welcome to Rome. This should be a fun week of tennis as we ramp up for the French Open in two weeks.
P.S. This is the first time in over 40 years that there are zero American men in the ATP top 30. Isner, Fritz, and Tiafoe have all dropped. It feels like 20 year old Sebastian Korda is only guy who has a chance to save American men's tennis.
