Good to see that he is trying to learn from it, and turn it into positive.

Good first step

He really needs to look inside himself. This type of thing happens a lot in his matches, little childish reactions. Finally caught up to him. He will have to work on his own mental. Better do it quick. He has a Rome R32 match in 10 days

That was really a way of choking, people just don't frame it like that because it's not the usual sort, but losing your cool in the face of struggle is mental weakness too.

You shouldn’t have to apologize for unintentional acts, especially those that result in no long term injuries to the unintended party.

USTA owes tennis fans an apology for ruining the tournament.

It was a harsh decision and the situation was really unfortunate for him, but the decision was obviously correct and after all he only has himself to blame. He should really stop shooting balls around, given how often this has happened recently it was basically a ticking time bomb...

He didn't hit her intentionally but he did hit the ball intentionally, so he's still responsible. Players should control their temper and not lash out at a ball like this because they can't control who it's going to hit

agree. he clearly is the best player ever in my opinion but the way he acts on court really contributes to him lacking that GOAT aura.

There's a little something called the rules which are the same for everyone. Djokovic understands that even if some of his moronic fans don't.

lame. the outcome was not intended but would have been totally avoided if Novak didn't elect to recklessly hit the ball without looking into a part of court there are always officials/ball kids. hitting the throat was bad enough but it could have just as easily hit her in the eye and caused severe damage. it's all on him.

Of course, he needs to apologize for his on-court behavior and for not setting a good example. The whole world was watching him.

If you talk about ruins, it is Djokovic that ruined the tournament. USTA is just enforcing the rules. They defaulted Serena Williams on one occasion in their own country. They gave Serena point penalties and game penalties on another occasion.

It is a grand slam. At the end of the day, they have a responsibility to protect the image of the event and the sport. If they let one player go, where is an end to such behavior?

You obviously haven’t read the rule by which he was defaulted. It states a player can be defaulted for recklessly and dangerously hitting a ball out of play.

The pace Novak hit the ball was not dangerous nor reckless. In fact, it’s the same pace every player hits balls back to the back on changeovers. Some look where they are hitting. Many don’t. None are defaulted.
