Novak Djokovic expressed his frustration with the noisy British fans after leading Serbia to a 2-0 victory in the Davis Cup quarter-finals in Malaga. During his match against Cameron Norrie, Djokovic cupped his ear and blew ironic kisses at the rowdy supporters. He later told them to “shut up” and “be quiet” after they began drumming during his on-court interview. Despite the drama, this disappointing evening for Britain saw Jack Draper fall to Miomir Kecmanovic in the opening rubber. With injured players Andy Murray and Dan Evans missing from the British team, and strong performances from the Serbian players, Britain’s hopes for victory were slim. The tie did not begin until 6.10pm due to the over-running first match of the day between Italy and the Netherlands. Djokovic expressed that although rowdy fan behavior is common in the Davis Cup, he would not tolerate it. Italy also saw a dramatic win against the Netherlands, with Italy reaching the semi-finals. The Dutch captain’s last-minute swap of players was not enough to secure a win for the Netherlands, and Italy celebrated their advancement in the competition.
