The spectators reacted to Novak’s gesture.
During his match against Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina, Novak Djokovic, who won the encounter by walk-over, took the time to blow a kiss to a spectator that was filming, but the Serbian later revealed in a hilarious manner that the act of love was for Hubert Hurkacz, whose picture was right in front him when he blew the kiss.
“I was actually blowing a kiss to @hubihurkacz,” Djokovic wrote on Instagram. Watch the video of the funny moment below:

Djokovic described Hurkacz as a “very lovable guy”
There is a special friendship between Novak Djokovic and Hubert Hurkacz.
In March, after Djokovic defeated Hurkacz in Dubai, Novak spoke highly about the Pole. “It was a challenging match as it always is against Hubert. One of the best guys on the Tour, definitely. Fantastic personality. Very lovable guy, a great relationship with everyone.
He’s always respectful. I wish him all the best for the rest of the season,” said Djokovic as quoted before. “I think he’s got one of the best serves in the game, so in the second set until that 11th game in the second set, I didn’t really have too many chances against his serve.
He was winning his service games comfortably.Fortunately for me, I also found the rhythm on my serve throughout the second set and held my serve. Love-30 at 5-4 for him, found a couple of good serves, good plays. Really one or two points can always decide [the winner] of matches like this.There’s not much that is separating both players. But I’m really, really glad with the way I played under pressure,” Djokovic explained.
