Novak Djokovic Wore FDNY Hat onto Court for U.S. Open Finals (Picture)

Novak Djokovic paid tribute to 9/11 by wearing an FDNY hat onto the court prior to his U.S. Open finals match against Rafael Nadal:

Whether he was trying to garner support from the New York crowd he has so frequently entertained by playing to them hardly matters; it was an awesome gesture by Djokovic who demonstrated keen awareness of his surroundings and the tragedy that was suffered.

    It was also an awesome performance once the match started.  He is having the best season ever in men’s tennis.

    Not sure why NY’ers don’t want to cheer for the guy when he is playing so well.

    I agree with you.  I can’t understand it either.
