Novak Djokovic apologise after striking ball at line judge due to frustration at US open 2020

Novak Djokovic was disqualified from the US Open after hitting a line judge with the ball.
The Serbia international had just dropped his serve to trail opponent Pablo Carreno Busta 6-5 in the opening set of their fourth-round match on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

He hit a ball behind him in frustration and it struck a female line judge. After the ball was struck, it was immediately clear that the woman was hurt and the Serbian rushed over to check on her condition.

Meanwhile, he has taken to his social media space to apologize for his actions. He also thanked his team, family and fans for their support. 

He posted on his Instagram saying:

"This whole situation has left me really sad and empty. I checked on the lines person and the tournament told me that thank God she is feeling ok. I‘m extremely sorry to have caused her such stress. So unintended. So wrong. I’m not disclosing her name to respect her privacy. As for the disqualification, I need to go back within and work on my disappointment and turn this all into a lesson for my growth and evolution as a player and human being. I apologize to the @usopen tournament and everyone associated for my behavior. I’m very grateful to my team and family for being my rock support, and my fans for always being there with me. Thank you and I’m so sorry."
