There was a bit of trouble this weekend at the Davis Cup match between Serbia and Croatia. Novak Djokovic and Ivan Ljubicic are great friends on tour and they werent expecting the crowd to react the way they did!

According to the AP,

Croatia’s fans booed and jeered and refused to stand when Serbia’s national anthem was played, and some chanted “Kill the Serb” and other abuse at Djokovic.

“We had expected the heated atmosphere before we came here, but I’m sorry that some fans behaved the way they did at the start of the match,” Djokovic said. “As the match progressed, things got a bit cooler probably because I was leading.”

Ljubicic, a good friend of Djokovic, said he was also annoyed by the chants from the crowd. “They affected my concentration just as they did his,” he said.
