Novak Djokovic, the popular Tennis player, was sensationally disqualified in the US Open fourth round on Sunday, as per the reports.
The latest report further adds, Djokovic was becoming frustrated after squandering three set points when Carreno Busta served at 4-5, 0-40, then suffering a fall. Having dropped serve to trail 5-6, he swatted a ball reasonably hard to the back of the court, inadvertently striking a female line judge in her throat.
With the line judge screaming out in pain as she fell to the ground, a horrified Djokovic ran over to her and apologized.
Djokovic, who was clearly making the point that he had not intended to hit the official, was overheard saying “she doesn’t have to go to the hospital for this” but after 12 minutes of pleading his case, his fate was sealed.
He later posted an apology on Instagram, check here!
