A historic moment was witnessed at the 2023 US Open as Novak Djokovic beat Russian Daniil Medvedev in a thrilling final to get to his 24th Grand Slam title. The world erupted with praises for the 36-year-old for achieving this feat but surprisingly the tennis legends Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal did not wish their rival after his win. This silence triggered a series of sardonic tweets from Djokovic’s fans.
The two tennis players have always been cheerful and have praised other players when they have won, but their silence with Djokovic speaks louder than words. The fans have already noticed the silence and started bashing the two. “Even their PA teams can’t mask their pain anymore it seems, or maybe they just don’t have a WiFi signal? “ tweeted a fan.
This incident makes Federer and Rafa look like sore losers who couldn’t handle the fact that Novak Djokovic is well-fit at the age of 36 and has already overtaken both of them in the number of Grand Slams. However, it is unclear as to why the tennis icons still haven’t wished their rival after his 24th triumph.

Roger Federer, the tennis legend has been an idol for many people around the world by defining and changing the course of tennis. However, in recent incidents, fans have pointed out that the Swiss was one of the first people to wish Nadal his 22nd Grand Slam title but remained silent for Novak’s recent win. Whatever the reason, the fans are looking out for the late wishes of the tennis pro, until then memes are being made out of the two.
Speculations are rising as to what Novak will do next. The Serb is set to play the Laver’s Cup without a break after the US Open and he admits that he will be playing with a tired body. The 36-year-old does not seem to stop at Grand Slams and wants to achieve the most he can before his body doesn’t allow him to go for more.
