Got hit in the throat and goes out limping
When I saw the headlines I was waiting for a clip of him intentionally serving it 100+ mph at the line judge into the throat...not this. This is excessive and dramatic.
Coronavirus.. No crowd... Ten people in the stadium and you hit one in her throat? What a bad luck men

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen.
Great reaction from the champ. I can only hope to react with such grace when against the tide.

You can tell from Djokovic's immediate reaction that there was zero intent... this is disappointing to say the least.

She got hit by a tennis ball in a tennis court! How is that even possible!?
They don't show the actual ball hitting the judge. There is video of it just not here... Thumbs down.
I feel as if the tournament director's needed VAR
I’ve once gotten hit with a full speed soccer ball in the nuts. But this? WOW. She’s lucky she didn’t get decapitated 🙄

Lol when you're too good that they gotta use all they have to bring you down because you're a Serb playing in Murica. This is like Jesse Owens at Berlin Olympics.

Wow, she's lucky she wasn't decapitated by that deadly murder-orb.

Okay so my understanding is once a ball is “dead” if he hit it and it hit her he can be disqualified?

Cal Smith:
The way the media makes it sound, I thought he first served it straight into her from point blank..
“He hit that kinda hard”....... really ?!??
The moment when Djokovic realized he's gotten too accurate for his own good, a random swat could land exactly on a human's throat.
*Seriously, if a ball does that to you, why become a linesperson*
God sakes. She’s ok! I blame this on those two old farts that made the decision. He clearly didn’t do it on purpose.

I know everyone says that Novak is bad because of this, but he didn’t do it on purpose even if he hit the ball out of small frustration and shows concern and apologizes to the line judge
You're welcome

2:13 is what you’re looking for.
This has to be one of the dumbest penalties I've ever seen. Clearly, it was an accident.

4:48 - 5:02 Here's the replay. Again you can't quite see the official with that picture. But ah 99% certain that that ball has struck the lines judge. I'm I the only one that finds this commentator's statement as odd. Does she suffer from seizures?

What a shame, it was clearly accidental, you can tell from his reaction.
3:17 Is this women made of glass?

2020 is the year of the reality show called Idiocracy. Nothing makes sense anymore. Common sense and ability to make good judgement is non existent at times.
Such an over reaction. How have we all become so soft . I saw a 11 yr old girl take an aluminum bat to the forehead after the batter let go of the bat. She fell back into the fence cried but stayed in her feet. This woman takes a tennis ball to her face mask and she’s just been in a car accident.

Sandy Castles:
Dude was in deep meditation at the time, and never intended any harm, nor was he acting out, hello.

PS. Extorting $10k is one matter, disqualifying him is another. See nfl sports
