Fans of sports personalities are some of the most devoted fans in the world. They will fight tooth and nail for their favorite when it comes down to it. And quite expectedly, Novak Djokovic fans are no different. Their favorite player is not often seen in the same light as others, which angers them even more. Recently, a renowned sports journalist criticized the Serb and found himself receiving several unsavory comments on social media. He shared his experience of being hounded by his fans in a post on the Daily Mail.

Dickson has gained a new lesson since the last week. It was to not talk smack about Djokovic without giving proof of the demerits. Otherwise, his days on social media would be numbered. Incidentally, he joins Andy Murray in this experience, who was also derided by Nolefam.

Andy Murray hounded by Djokovic fans

A video of the 2014 Shanghai Masters went viral recently, which showed Roger Federer facing Novak Djokovic in the finals. During one of the rallies, Djokovic fired a forehand ball that struck Federer on the body. Andy Murray responded to Djokovic’s shot, saying it was a legitimate play. But he also mentioned how Nole complained about a similar shot he received against Rafael Nadal in Canada and Norrie in Rome.

Similar to Dickson’s comments, Murray’s words did not sit well with Djokovic’s fans. His jibe was heavily criticized by fans of the Serb, and they even went ahead and called him attention-seeking. These two instances show that Djokovic’s fans should not be taken lightly. However, it is good to see that lacking from his early years, the 24-time grand slam champion has finally developed a loyal fan base now.
