John Millman gets insulted on social media after losing to Grigor Dimitrov

Insults through social media happen always more often and the last player involved was John Millman. After not converting two match points against Grigor Dimitrov, the Australian player explained: 'The guys sending me messages on Instagram think I could have done more - I got called some pretty nasty names for losing that point.

I saw the video of the first match point on my phone as I scrolled through all the abuse, from all those great punters who then troll your account. He nearly cleaned both lines with two volleys and did what a No.3 player in the world does.

Great point - too good.’ Millman clearly has some regrets, but he still sees the positive side: 'I can be proud of giving everything. That’s tennis. It would have been one of the highlights of my career to win here - I’d have loved it to win in front of my home crowd who stuck it out after midnight to watch me play.’ ALSO READ: Roger Federer: '12 months ago I was No. 17, things were a little on edge'
