The world number one was disqualified for hitting a ball at an official this Sunday in New York.
Breaking: Novak Djokovic Disqualified From US Open: After dropping his serve to trail 6-5 in the opening set, a frustrated Djokovic smashed a loose ball down the court, which hit the lineswoman.
The ball then struck the lineswoman in the throat.
The lineswoman yelled out and fell to the ground and then was helped by umpire Aurelie Tourte and Djokovic.
After a 10-minute discussion with Carreno Busta sitting quickly on his bench, Djokovic was defaulted and kicked out of the tournament.
During the discussion Djokovic was furious with the decision as he yelled at the umpire saying: ‘She doesn’t have to go to the hospital for this.
‘You’re going to choose a default in this situation? My career, grand slam, center stage.’
