But that was the case in the Australian city of Perth yesterday after Australian-Croat Bernard Tomic had just disposed of Serbian Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-4, to give Australia a 1-0 lead in the Hopman Cup. During a signing session after the match, Tomic happily signed a Serbian supporters flag, perhaps the Serbian fan was so used to Novak winning that they got confused.
