Djokovic Stunningly Exits US Open

Novak Djokovic Disqualified From US Open After Pinging Ball Straight Into Linesperson’s Throat

Djokovic kicked out of US Open for hitting lineswoman with ball

Tourte then announced that Djokovic was defaulted, the tennis equivalent of an ejection. I don't know it was 10 minutes or 15 minutes but I was a little bit cold.

Novak Djokovic getting disqualified at a major tennis event would always be a major story, but at this year's US Open, it's particularly shocking.

Djokovic joins John McEnroe, Jeff Tarango, Carsten Arriens, Serena Williams, and many more on the list of Tennis stars who have been disqualified from various tournaments due to on-field misconduct. You can not do this, but of course I think that Novak never, never wants to hit the line umpire. I'm extremely sorry to have caused her such stress. So unintended. So wrong. He says he needs to "turn this all into a lesson for my growth and evolution as a player and human being".

King was far from the only person to instantly declare Djokovic guilty of all charges without a second thought.

Friemel revealed that he was in the referee's office when the incident happened, and described what he saw when he arrived on centre court.

Djokovic's expression after the ball hit the woman made it appear unintentional.

Corticosteroids Can Be Used In COVID-19 Treatment, New Studies Show
One study included in the meta-analysis found that corticosteroids might even increase mortality in non-severe patients. Three studies have shown that these anti-inflammatory drugs can improve the survival of the sickest COVID-19 patients .


The US Tennis Association released a statement saying Djokovic would be fined all prize money and lose all ranking points earned during the major. "And taking everything into consideration, there was no discretion involved", Friemel said.

In a follow-up statement Djokovic, who also courted controversy when he was seen training at a club in Marbella in May in violation of Spain's lockdown rules, said he would keep an open mind on vaccination.

This story will be updated if and when the world No. 1 comments on the incident.

Djokovic chose not to address the media following the match, which will result in an additional fine.

And, of course, there's been his dominance on the court.

The 33-year-old Tennis ace posted a lengthy message on the social media platform and revealed that the whole situation has left him really "sad and empty". He was 26-0 this year heading into Sunday's affair and was the overwhelming favorite to capture his fourth US Open title.

90 percent of countries experience disruption to health services: WHO survey
For governments, widespread stay-at-home orders can be avoided if they take temporary, geographically targeted interventions. These are cases of crowds in stadiums, nightclubs, places of worship and other places of mass gathering.


But it all came apart so suddenly Sunday.

After losing his serve, the world No. 1 hit a ball in anger and struck the official in the throat.

Novak Djokovic is out at the U.S. Open under remarkable circumstances after hitting a line judge with a ball in frustration.

Djokovic then shook hands with Carreno Busta but not with the official in the umpire's chair as he left the court looking bewildered. "If he would have hit it anywhere else, if it had landed anywhere else" the outcome might have been different, Zverev said during a video news conference.

A USTA spokesperson said the line judge was "doing okay" after receiving treatment from medical staff.

A world number one being defaulted sent shockwaves around Flushing Meadows which has witnessed many insane events down the years, including two high-profile incidents involving Serena Williams, most recently in the 2018 final against Naomi Osaka when she was docked a game near the end.
