32-year-old Anya Palyus said The sun that she was the spectator in question and claimed she “wanted to support” Kyrgios.

“He always says the crowd is against him and I wanted to show that we are for him, I wanted to cheer him on,” said the Polish lawyer, who was briefly removed from the stands before later being allowed back in.

Kyrgios was due to meet Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals on Friday, but the Spaniard withdrew before the match citing injury. As such, Kyrgios’ first Grand Slam semi-final failed to materialize and the Australian advanced through the draw.

Djokovic’s win was his fourth straight at Wimbledon and moved the Serb ahead of Roger Federer on the all-time Slam winning list. Djokovic’s 21 major trophies are one ahead of the Swiss and one behind Nadal, whose 22 Slams are an unbeaten record.

Djokovic, 35, may not be able to compete for another major trophy until next May at the French Open. Current travel rules will prevent unvaccinated Serbs from playing in the US Open this fall or the Australian Open next January.
