Apart from his brilliance in the match, Djokovic made it to the headlines of social media for his response to a fan during the live match. A fan happened to shut up a fellow spectator at the moment when the Serbian superstar was taking his serve.

Subsequently, the 21-time grand slam winner Djokovic happened to say ‘thank you’ to the fan. The video of this incident went immediately viral on social media within minutes of being shared by a user on the micro-blogging site Twitter.

The reaction from Djokovic drew some hilarious reactions from the fans in the comment section of the video posted on the official Twitter handle of the Australian open.
