Novak Djokovic’s Thumping Victory Over Bosnia-Born American Player Once Led to Violent Clashes in Melbourne

Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic is the second-highest Grand Slam winner of all time. After clinching the Wimbledon Championships title earlier this year, he is just one title behind Rafael Nadal. While the Serb has strong chances to go past his Spanish rival, his decisions have made it tougher for him. The 21-time Grand Slam could not participate in the Australian Open and the US Open due to his stance on vaccination.

As it always happens, the decision created heated debates among several fans and pundits both in Australia and the US. However, this was not the first time Djokovic led to a difference in opinion between fans. Back in the 2009 Australian Open, there was a scuffle between two groups of fans following Djokovic’s match. Here’s what happened.

Novak Djokovic’s Thumping Victory Over Bosnia-Born American Player Once Led to Violent Clashes in Melbourne

After winning the Australian Open in 2008, Djokovic was back down under to defend his title the following year. The Serb started well and won the first two matches without dropping a set. However, in his third-round match against Bosnian-born American tennis star Amer Delic, he faced a stern test. After winning the first set easily, Djokovic lost the second set to the American.

Djokovic recovered quickly to take the next set. However, it was a tough battle for the defending champion to win the final set. Amidst the intense match, violence broke out between Serbian and Bosnian fans. Later, two fans were arrested while 30 more were ejected from the Rod Laver Arena.

Both Djokovic and Delic condemned the incident as they played the game fairly and in a friendly spirit. “There’s absolutely no place for that here. This is a tennis match. Novak and I are friends. We’re both competitors, obviously. In the end, it was a fair match, and there was no reason for such things,” Delic said after the match.

Mick Schumacher made his first appearance in a McLaren Formula 1 car as he conducted development work for Pirelli at Silverstone today

The former Haas driver, now the reserve for McLaren’s engine supplier Mercedes, sampled the MCL38 two days after the British Grand Prix. As wet conditions persisted throughout the day he completed 53 laps and set a best time of 1’37.428.

McLaren was one of three teams running at the track. Alexander Albon logged the most laps, covering 86 in his Williams and setting a best time of 1’41.116. Haas reserve driver Pietro Fittipaldi lapped in 1’42.124 and did 62 laps.

Pirelli intended to use the test to finalise the construction of its 2025 tyres, the last which will be produced to the current widths. F1’s official tyre supplier is producing slightly softer versions of its hardest compounds for next year.

However the weather conditions meant slick tyre developments was impossible. They took the opportunity to assess new intermediate tyre constructions and look into how well they ran when used without heating blankets.

The test is Pirelli’s sixth this season. It will continue tomorrow when Lando Norris will replace Schumacher in the McLaren, Albon will hand the Williams over to his team mate Logan Sargeant and Oliver Bearman will drive for Haas.

Pirelli’s testing schedule will continue at Monza where it plans to evaluate the new C6 tyre compound it will introduce next year which is designed to better suit street circuits.

“This year is very busy because we have to develop the 2025 tyres but also to start the 2026 development,” Pirelli motorsport director Mario Isola told media including RaceFans at Silverstone.

“I believe that we have a good product now that is very close to the targets that Formula 1 defined for us. That was thanks to the test days that, after some years, we have been able to get. This is telling you how important it is to test.”

Max Verstappen spotted in class act with Lewis Hamilton’s father

Max Verstappen spotted in class act with Lewis Hamilton’s father

Max Verstappen was spotted engaging in a handshake with Anthony Hamilton after the British Grand Prix on Sunday after his son, Lewis Hamilton, beat the Dutchman to the top step of the podium in front of a sold-out home crowd.

Hamilton and Verstappen have enjoyed their fair share of battles over the years and clashed multiple times on track during their legendary 2021 title fight. However, despite this, there has always been an underlying respect between the pair, and this has been epitomised by the behaviour of the seven-time world champion’s father.

After his son found himself on the wrong end of a controversial end to the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, both Hamiltons conducted themselves impeccably. Anthony was pictured shaking hands with Verstappen, and his father Jos, expressing his respect and congratulating the Dutchman on his first Drivers’ Championship crown.

Nearly three years later, Hamilton Snr shared another handshake with the Dutchman, who is now a three-time world champion en route to his fourth. The 26-year-old hunted his rival down relentlessly during the final stint but could not bridge the gap to the Mercedes driver, who duly ended his winless streak.

Hamilton’s victory at Silverstone was a monumental one on many levels. By taking the chequered flag first, the 39-year-old became the first-ever driver to win nine times at a single event, and the first to pass 300 Grand Prix starts and stand on the top step of the podium afterwards.

It also ended a 945-day wait for a victory. Hamilton’s previous trip to the top step of the rostrum came at the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix with Mercedes’ miserable 2022 and 2023 campaigns making it nearly impossible for the seven-time world champion to fight at the head of the field.

Verstappen appreciated the significance of this result for his former title rival. The Dutchman was first on the scene to congratulate Hamilton after the chequered flag, pulling up alongside the Mercedes driver and expressing his respect, before Lando Norris followed suit.

Fans Has Been Filling Petition to Demand Brutal Punishment for Chase Elliott

Fans Has Been Filling Petition to Demand Brutal Punishment for Chase Elliott

Safe to say, many fans were angry with Chase Elliott’s shenanigans. Some even called for a drastic measure against the driver, writing, “Obviously they need to suspend Chase Elliott for this.” Another social media user was baffled that two instances of the same offence is garnering different reactions, and commented, “Wait, did Chase do the same thing as Bubba with no one saying a word about it?”

Notably, NBC might have something to do with the different levels of criticism that the two drivers are facing. As per Heavy.com, since Alex Bowman was the race winner and the incident happened during his victory lap, the cameras were focused on him (as expected to be), putting Wallace’s actions in clear view. Hence, Elliott’s actions went largely unnoticed initially, with Daniel Hemric dashcam turning out to be one of the few video evidences!

One critic took the harsher route and demanded strict action against the driver, saying, “Chase Elliott is a th*g and should be parked for the rest of the season.” Another NASCAR fan also jeered at the HMS driver for being able to dish out punishment and not take it, “LOL. Don’t give it if you can’t take it right back Chase. This is a nothing burger.”

In a post-race interview, Daniel Suarez did share that Elliott was the one who instigated the on-track altercation. “We got together right there in the last couple of corners. He pushed me a little bit, and then I pushed him with all my intention, and I ended up hitting him pretty good on the very last corner. My bad on that,” the #99 driver revealed.

Finally, someone noted that, “Chase got what he deserved.” There weren’t too many willing to lend a sympathetic ear, with another user writing, “So you’re telling me chase started some cr*p, got dumped for it, and wants us to feel bad for him? What a pity party.”

In another similar occurrence, the 28-year-old was suspended for one race last year after he intentionally wrecked Denny Hamlin during the Coca-Cola 600. In 2022, Bubba Wallace also faced a one race suspension for intentionally wrecking Kyle Larson in a “dangerous act” of retaliation. But this time, though, it seems both #23 and #9 might be let off the hook by NASCAR, since both were post-race incidents. If we are to look at history, Martin Truex Jr serves as the biggest example for his actions at Richmond in April this year. After a dominant MTJ lost to Denny Hamlin, he vented his frustration by slamming Kyle Larson’s door, and bumping the #11’s rear three times. However, the driver escaped penalty!

Looking at this, do you think either Bubba Wallace or Chase Elliott will face the same fate? Let us know what you think!
