Wimbledon 2024 Zimonjic, Djokovic’s coach in Monte Carlo and Rome, praises the English public: “They are very respectful here”

NEnad Zimonjic won Serbia’s only Davis Cup in 2010 alongside Novak Djokovic and later captained his country. After dispensing with Goran Ivanisevic at the end of Indian Wells, he helped his compatriot at the Monte Carlo and Rome Masters 1000s.

Djokovic yesterday confronted the fans who filled the centre court at Wimbledon after he understood that they had booed him during his round of 16 match with Holger Rune.

What I can tell you is that the public here is very respectful.“, says Nenad Zimonjic, who has shared many years with Djokovic on the Serbian Davis Cup team.

If there are people who behave badly, I would say that there are a few.

“If there are people who behave badly, I would say that there are only a few of them. In the past we have played many Davis Cup matches where the whole stadium was against us, whistling us when we served or during the point. This is nothing compared to that. Novak is a player who has had a lot of experiences that he can use to his advantage,” Nenad said.

So during some of his toughest days against Federer, he turns the “Roger, Roger”, in “Nole, Nole“.

“I still think he’s a very popular player,” Zimonjic continued to the group of Spaniards who questioned him: “I was with him in Monte Carlo, Rome and they support him a lot even during training. Now that Roger is no longer playing, that Rafa plays little, he’s the biggest star we have, so he’s receiving a lot of heat.”
