Novak Djokovic’s bad tempered incident during Saturday’s Doha final has driven criticism from fellow rival Nick Kyrgios.
Playing against top seed Andy Murray, a momentary lapse in clear thinking by the former world No.1 saw him smash a ball on the court, which ended up hitting a woman. Djokovic managed to escape a severe punishment after the umpire issued him a warning. Later on in the match, he received a second warning and a point deduction for smashing his racking on the ground.
Djokovic’s controversial antic on his way to his the Doha title has raised the eyebrows of Australian player Kyrgios. Throughout his career, Kyrgios has been involved in a series of controversies. His more recent resulted in a three-week suspension from the ATP Tour for ‘unsportsmanlike conduct’. He was slammed with the penalty following his somewhat substandard performance against Mischa Zverev at the Shanghai Masters.
