Get him’ – Novak Djokovic demands fan is removed from centre court during three-hour clash with Jacob Fearnley.

Novak Djokovic demanded that a fan was removed from centre court during his second round victory on Thursday.

The Serbian was facing British wildcard Jacob Fearnley and cruised into a two-set advantage.





However a disturbance in the crowd riled the world number two after he dropped the third set.

After winning the third set, Fearnley could be seen looking behind him into the stand with reports suggesting that security had been speaking to two individuals.

Djokovic could then be heard talking to security, saying: “It’s him. That guy. Get him.

“That guy there, the grey tracksuit just going down the stairs now.”

Djokovic’s comments suggested the spectator was already on his way out of the court, and it was unclear whether they were allowed back in.

The Serbian star could then be heard talking to the umpire, saying: “Why’s he not out?”

This led to BBC commentator John Lloyd saying in the coverage: “I wondered if it was someone maybe talking too much, I don’t know what it was there.”

Despite the disturbance, Djokovic bounced back from dropping the third set to claim the fourth 7-5 and secure his spot in the third round.

However Fearnley’s performance attracted a huge ovation on centre court as the pair played out a thrilling three-hour contest.
