Cheers from the crowd

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Aus­tralia's John Mill­man is all for rowdy spec­ta­tors get­ting in the mood with a drink - or three or four. The 30 year old de­feated France's Ugo Hum­bert in four sets and said af­ter­wards that the back­ing of the vo­cal home crowd was some­thing he 'loved' and 'needs'. One of the spon­sors in Mel­bourne is a Chi­nese liquor, and that's just fine with Mill­man. "I know that the Chi­nese one's a really strong al­co­hol so let's feed the crowd," he said, be­fore adding quickly: "I don't en­cour­age binge-drink­ing, guys, so please don't quote me on that. "Look, the Aus­tralian Open - it's not just a ten­nis event now, it should be an en­ter­tain­ment event."
