Novak Djokovic changes tune as Henman spots difference about Serb at ATP Finals
Novak Djokovic adopted an uncharacteristic approach by "enjoying" the animosity he received from the Turin crowd on Tuesday, according to Tim Henman . The world No 1 suffered defeat at the hands of home favourite Jannik Sinner at the ATP Finals and the crowd were certainly not on his side.
Djokovic confirmed he would end the year on top of the world rankings with victory in his tournament opener against Holger Rune on Sunday. But the 24-time Grand Slam champion wasn't to have it his own way against Sinner.
Italian Sinner was always going to have the crowd on his side and his name was chanted from the moment he stepped on court. Djokovic wasn't too happy though when they cheered a double fault of his during the first set.
The 36-year-old handed Sinner a break point with the mistake and sarcastically clapped the crowd for their celebratory reaction. But the fans hit back by booing and whistling Djokovic.
