The World No.1 just got a bad day for his short-tempered characteristic. After hitting a female line judge with the ball, Novak Djokovic was disqualified from the event, leaving in shock.

Novak Djokovic was having a match with Pablo Carreno Busta from Spain when the incident took place. In fact, people are way too familiar with the short temperament of the World No.1 in previous events. However, no one could imagine how he would be kicked out of a tournament due to this.

The tennis star clearly didn't intend to hit the ball at the line judge but the rule is clear.

According to reports, Novak Djokovic had shown signs of frustration in the opening set after the Spain opponent led the game at 5-6. Then he was supposed to change ends and while walking to the other side, the 33-year-old Serb just hit the ball backwards without looking carefully.

The ball, unfortunately, hit a female line judge nearby. The judge collapsed right after being hit at the throat.

Though Novak Djokovic immediately run to the woman to check on her and explained that’s an accident, he was disqualified from the US Open after 10 minutes discussing with the board.

Novak came to check on the judge who was having difficulty in breathing.

When hearing the announcement, the World No.1 couldn’t hide his shock:

“She doesn’t have to go to the hospital. You’re going to choose a default in this situation? My career, grand slam, centre stage.”

Reports also had it that the World No.1 had an intense discussion with the court, where he argued there were many other options instead of defaulting the game.

Despite his explanation, the judges decided to default the game and Novak must be out.

Watching the video when Novak Djokovic hit the ball backwards, it seemed he didn’t intend to hit the judge but this could be considered a lesson for athlete’s attitudes and behaviours during the game in general.

The veteran athlete then quickly left the stadium without attending the press conference that is mandatory to explain for the situation. Most people agreed that the Serb tennis star should have confronted the press and gave an official apology. He should at least take the responsibility for the incident.
