Why Novak Djokovic Gave A Roger Federer Fan The Biggest Death Stare Ever

Nowadays, it seems like Novak Djokovic is never too far away from some controversy.

It's safe to say the world number one is treading on thin ice with some fans.

The Serbian tennis star clinched a 6-0 6-2 6-3 victory over Mikael Ymer in the first round at Roland Garros - but he just couldn't help himself when it came to one incident with a court-side fan.

With only a select number of supporters allowed inside the arena due to social distancing regulations, the sounds from the game travelled easily among spectators, coaches, players and the commentary team alike.

But things weren't all as they seemed.

After the match, the 33-year-old revealed the true identity of the so-called 'Federer fan'... well, sort of.

"No, that's my childhood friend," he said while smirking.

"I sent him a kiss after I won the game. It was very nice to see him."
