After the victory, in which he had confrontations with the public, who booed him throughout the match, the world number one used his social networks to leave a provocative message: “I dedicate this victory to the orchestra“.

Furthermore, Nole went through the press conference and referred to the whistles he suffered: “I try to transform it into something that is constructive for me. I don’t look for problems with the public. If they start whistling at me, I’ll play better. It’s not my kind of mentality, but if people start reacting in a certain way that I don’t think I deserve, that I feel isn’t fair or explainable, I will react.”
