Novak Djokovic is defaulted from the US Open 2020

In accordance with the Grand Slam rulebook, following his actions of intentionally hitting a ball dangerously or recklessly within the court or hitting a ball with negligent disregard of the consequences, the US Open tournament referee defaulted Novak Djokovic from the 2020 US Open. Because he was defaulted, Djokovic will lose all ranking points earned at the US Open and will be fined the prize money won at the tournament in addition to any or all fines levied with respect to the offending incident.

Boycott US Open! What a joke of a tournament. Softness at its best,it's just a tennis ball FFS I've taken hard shots to the face and even between the legs when close to the net much harder than this and never had to be taken to the hospital lol,the lady should be given an Oscar for this performance.
I can't believe that they don't even uploaded the footage of Djokovic hitting the ball... it's clear that it was not even a hard hit or intentional.
Djokovic out of tournament.Fedrer and nadal not playing.
Other players thinking now we finally have a chance of winning a grandslam 🤔

wait wait, I just saw the video, are the referee kidding me? he just hit the ball backwards, even without any strong hit to the back and not even show rage, just mild disappointment, you are nutsssssss Most tenis player do that when disappointed on themselves, was his turn to serve?. I THOUGHT he hit the ball strong and with rage and it wasnt the case. hahahahahaha. no way...hahahah...the most there should has been a warning....anyway, life goes on , best regards and be safe

If this un intenational incident calls fr disqualification , then we all have seen far worse , this has been done to him fr the association he has formed , officials want to show him they r the boss and he is mere player . Common fedd and nadal show some support fr a person who wants to make changes in system ,
well U.S open is becoming a high ground for drama...

Many times you can see those 'ball kids' getting hit by a ball and nothing happens.. that woman is clearly overeacting.
I was told he hit a judge with a racket because of a bad call. It's amazing how distorted truth becomes when told through gossip channels. This is morally not straightforward.
Jelena Petrovic
Jelena Petrovic:
Cause something like this happened for "the first time" in tennis, the second time you might consider sending amateur actors to some casting for a movie, rather than judging U.S. open.
Unacceptable. They were just waiting for the excuse to get him out. They could not stop him in other ways. Ridiculous.

Maybe victim should come to Main Umpire and Novak when they talked and said:" Its ok, Im fine now, let him finish the match" instead of just staying there??
I think this is the biggest chance for thiem to win the first grand slm title

King Novak's haters said "If Federer and Nadal and other players can not beat him, i will disqualify him myself". Oh king novak's haters you need to beat king novak fair and square, but it is so cheap to use this trick to disqualify him.

Have they even seen the footage? Like that ball wasn't even in high speed, I doubt that it could even hurt someone seriously.And she acted like she was shot. Oscar for the best acting goes to Karen.
He is also the world number 1. I know myself that I won't be watching Us open after this.
