LONDON: World number one Novak Djokovic apologised for upsetting a ball girl who looked visibly shaken when he roared at her during his Wimbledon fourth round win over Kevin Anderson on Tuesday.

The defending champion was 3-2 down and at 30-30 in the final set when he screamed in the girl's direction.

"I'm sorry. There was nothing towards her. Maybe she was just afraid of my screaming there," said Djokovic who said he was trying to fire himself up in the fifth set decider.

"I was pretty close to her. I'm definitely going to try to apologise to her if I did something wrong."

Time to go and get some anger management therapy?

I've never heard any ballkid who was scared of Federer or Nadal. And now in the space of 4 months, we get two cases involving Djokovic.

Spotted it during the TV Coverage. No excuse shouting in the face of an innocent ballkid like that for your towel.

There is always a possibility that a clown will scare kids on occasion.

This story sucks. Look, the kid got a tough love lesson. As long as Nole did not touch her, this is not a real story.. I am tired of people getting their feelings hurt when your fart on the court.
