It has been 26 days since Novak Djokovic stepped into the court for the last time. The Serb has been keeping himself out of the events for extensive periods to spend time with his family and clear his head. While he’s finally back to unleash his dominance in Rome, the tennis channel probably wasn’t satisfied as they gave him a controversial welcome.

Recently, Djokovic stepped into the arena where countless fans would be witnessing the Italian Open action. As the Serb took some time to meet and greet his excited admirers, the security failed to stop them from surrounding their favorite tennis star. Capturing a glimpse of the whole welcome scene, the Tennis Channel’s official X handle recently posted a video, but with a caption that said, Security guard in the mud.”

While the title targeted the security guard who failed to stop the passionate fans, followers didn’t like how the media channel presented it. A fan despised the title used by the Tennis Channel. Analyzing the loud cheers echoing in the video, he wrote, “All I could hear was kids calling Nole Nole.. You don’t want to mention how popular he is in Rome?”
