Most people would probably have to be fucking high to watch a ball bounce back and forth for hours on end. Yesterday that, apparently, became the reality during Novak Djokovic's Rogers Cup semifinal victory over Jeremy Chardy. During the match the stench of cannabis in the crowd proved so distracting that Djokovic complained to the umpire:

“Someone is smoking weed, I can smell it, I’m getting dizzy. Somebody is getting high. Can you smell it? The whole place smells of it.”

Afterward, Djokovic elaborated for the media:

“You can’t believe how bad it was. Whoever it is, I hope he doesn’t come back tomorrow. He’s probably on the seventh sky somewhere.”

The puffing patron has apparently been a--uh--chronic problem, as Djokovic claims to have picked up on his scent during a doubles match on Friday:

"Yesterday in the doubles match, today again. Somebody’s really enjoying his life around the tennis court."

Djokovic faces off against Andy Murray today in the Final. If nothing else this (for now) anonymous man/woman seems to have provided us all with the blueprint for how to actually enjoy it.
