Liam Broady clashes with Novak Djokovic’s fans on social media

Liam Broady, British player eliminated in the second qualifying round of the US Open, was the protagonist of a social media clash against Novak Djokovic’s fans.

Liam Broady, British player eliminated in the second qualifying round of the US Open, was the protagonist of a social media clash against Novak Djokovic’s fans. Once his chance to go and play for a place in the Flushing Meadows main draw faded, the player decided to let off steam on social media.

The subject of the 28-year-old’s tweet is the withdrawal that takes place just before the draw, effectively damaging those who play the qualifying rounds. He wrote on Twitter: “There should be a rule against late retirements from Grand Slams when you know you will not play.

Really difficult for the number 1 seeded to qualify for the Grand Slam as players know they are not playing on the main draw list but have to still pass the qualifiers.” Social media immediately attacked Liam Broady: everyone thought that the reference was Novak Djokovic, but he tried to explain that his criticism goes beyond this: “I’d like Nole’s fans to rest now.

I don’t understand why I’m still taking it. on the neck from random bot accounts for tweeting something that is completely reasonable that people have perceived to be about Novak Djokovic.”

Djokovic’s retirement from the US Open 2022

Novak Djokovic will not be able to be present at the US Open: his decision not to get vaccinated against Covid has the consequence of not being able to enter the United States.

So the Serbian tennis player decided to send a message on social media: “Sadly, I won’t be able to travel to New York this time for the US Open. Thanks to #Nolefam for the messages of love and support. Good luck to all of mine.

Fellow players! I will keep myself in good shape and with a positive spirit and look forward to the opportunity to return to compete again. See you soon in the world of tennis. ” As in Australia, New York will also be a lucky loser to take Djokovic’s vacant spot on the main draw.

However, the choice of retirement a few hours from the main draw does not agree with all the Tour players.
