Is it my classic Serbian paranoia and lack of trust towards the Western world, or are home crowds (especially in Britain and the US) ALWAYS against Djokovic?
Not just the crowd, but the media as well?

Wasn't Federer the one doing that a few days ago?

Federer's a legend at Wimbledon and they adore him there. Nothing to it. There's no hatred towards Novak at all, never has been. It's just he's playing Federer who's treated as a god for what he's done.

I've noticed this too!
I pay close attention to this as a lot of times during our (Greece) sporting matches (Football,Basketball etc..) we get a lot of negative commentary!

The crowd's don't really like him, not sure why. And it isn't just against certain players, it's a general thing.

The media absolutely love him though.

No one IMO gets it worse than the Williams sisters. Outside of the US that is.

you're both paranoid, its just everyone loves Federer, his style of play is so good to watch, looks so smooth. The crowd have nothing against Djokovic.

You mean that the US and British crowds don't like anyone that much? I don't understand what you wrote there.

As for media, I don't know, I usually see less attention to Djokovic compared to Fed/Nadal/Murray, even these days and even during his amazing Early 2011 run.
Mats Willander, that clueless hack, is basically ignorant of Djokovic's existence.

---
Regardless, I understand the love for Federer. He is a legend. He seems to be winning this, which I still find unexpected. Props to him, though, gotta be fair.

It's not only tennis though.
I've noticed this a lot with Balkan nations in football.

Anyways back on topic, Djokovic is in trouble. Federer is killing him.
