Novak Djokovic always gets emotional if the fans start cheering for his opponent which provides him with extra motivation to beat the rival and prove the fans wrong, says Djokovic’s former coach Boris Becker.
The German coached the World No.1 between 2013 and 2016 and during that time, the Serb won six Grand Slam titles.
“Novak is emotional. He always gets temperamental when the crowd is rooting for another player. And he uses his fingers to show the fans that they have woken him up now. And he says, ‘I’m going to beat this guy,” Becker said in his documentary ‘Boom! Boom! The World vs Boris Becker’ on Apple TV+. The streaming platform shared a clip on its social media platforms.
In that documentary, the 22-time Grand Slam champion himself appeared and gave his perspective on the same. “It’s a battle! It’s a fight! Unpredictable things happen. Some people take you out of your comfort zone, right?” Also Read: Who Is Lorenzo Musetti Girlfriend? Know All About Veronica Confalonieri

Now Sinner will face Holger Rune in the semi-final after the Danish defeated Daniil Medvedev in the quarterfinal.
