After losing the break in the finish of the first set, Djokovic accidentally hit the line judge, the lady fell, fighting for her breath, even though the Serbian tennis player simply threw the ball out of his pocket, and now he is facing severe punishment.
It was immediately hinted that the outcome would not work for Novak; at one point the three leaders gathered in the center of the field and talked about what should be done, and although there were no fans, everything they talked about with Novak could not be clearly heard in the broadcast.
However, it is a part. The decision of the Frenchwoman who was the delegate was awaited; after some time one of the officials told Novak that he was disqualified, the Serb told him that he did not intend to do so, and the following was clearly heard:
– But one minute ago, you told me something different.
US Open officials responded to the Serbian ace:
– We had no choice because they had to take the line judge to the hospital after the blow, and indeed, the mentioned lady did not appear on the field until the end of this situation.
Then the Serb said:
– She doesn’t have to go to the hospital because of this. Do you choose in this situation? My career, Grand Slam, Central Stadium, Novak replied.
