Asked at the press conference if he saw what Noll did, Shelton said: “I didn’t watch it until after the game. I don’t like when I’m on social media and I see people telling me how to celebrate or not celebrate. If we win the game, I think you have a right to do that.”As a child, I always learned that impersonation is a sincere form of flattery, so that’s all I have to say about it. ”
He also talked about the lessons this match against Djokovic left him with: “I learned that he’s a guy who can compete at the highest level. He has a similar mentality to me on the court in that he wants to chase you, be aggressive, and express his emotions. I think it was really cool to watch.”It was my first time competing against them, so I’d love to play against them again. ”
