Djokovic To Lose Ranking Points, Fined Prize Money-Disqualification.
World Number 1, Novak Djokovic was earlier disqualified from the US Open 2020 after he unconsciously hit a ball at the line judge.
The incident happened in the Round-of-16 tie, while trailing 5-6 to opponent and eventual beneficiary, Pablo Carreño Busta.
The 33-year-old top seed headed straight for his car afterwards.
Pablo Busta’s reaction:
“I was celebrating the break with my coach,” he told reporters.
“When I heard that the line judge was on the floor I was in shock. I never expected this moment when playing Novak.
Carreno Busta added that the incident was “unintentional.”
“I think it was bad luck,” he said.
