Re: Djokovic disqualified from US open

It definitely wasn’t deliberate, he turned and hit the ball at the same time before realising the lineswoman was there.

Of course he was wrong and deserved the punishment but he’s not guilty of intentional harm.

Deffo. I saw this on the news. I liked that he immediately went over to the line judge to see if she was OK. That action alone shows how unintentional it was.

Re: Djokovic disqualified from US open

If I'm honest, I didn't think it looked deliberate either but I think he has been judged on his past antics if you know what I mean. It's not the first time he has slammed the ball out in fact a SKY reporter once questioned him about his outbursts but Djok laughed it off. He also once got so angry that he ripped his own shirt up which was pretty funny to watch.

Deliberate or not - he needs to control his temper tantrums.
