Ellen DeGeneres has no business being a tennis official.
Can't belive this.. getting hit by a tennis ball, on a tennis court, where they play tennis. What are the odds.

If Djokovic hit me with a ball, I'd ask him to autograph it and I'd keep it as a souvenir.

She shouldn’t ref a match if she is not fit enough to withstand an accidental ball to the neck.
Disgraceful decision by the main referee.
That line-woman was over reacted.

This is a complete joke. I'm just as frustrated as outraged by the judges' decision.

"The top seated player THROWN out of the tournament"
Couldn't you have used the word "disqualified". That was totally inappropriate.

When she was sent to hospital, her family and neighbours went there immediately, and prayed the physicians trying to revive her to give it up, and release the family and a neighbours from further sufferings.

He hit that ball with about 10% of his full power. It almost seemed like it was just a random action, out of carelessness. He didn’t seem angry to me. If he was angry, it would have been a very fast, aggressive shot. But hey, the media loves drama, spin and BS.
Wow, Karen. Good job getting someone disqualified for getting hit with a tennis ball... on a tennis court...
its was a clear accident and unintentional. I've seen many videos of officials even ball boys and girls more severely got hit by players many of which are minors little boy ang girls but not penalized but, this time the judges unfairly and wrongly made bad decision! we can see the lady got hurt and clearly immediately Djokovic approched the lady and help her and apologized. its a loss to the US Open, loss to the tennis community and the the loss to the fans of tennis deprived to watch a top caliber and a good player not to play.
Doug Maverick
Doug Maverick:
This was a complete accident unintentional very bad decision by the US Open. This shows that we need to get rid of all lines people and let the Hawkeye cameras decide the points from now on less people on the court the better.

The extreme measure of disqualifying him is 1: unnecessary and 2: would make Djokovic feel unnecessary guilt at an obvious accident

There is only 1 actor in this case with a wrong job, yes that's line judge... What an overacting displayed

She needed a pay day what an actor..leave it too the kids..should get a role on home and away..god dam joke

I have to salute Djokovic for his patience. After I would hear the sounds she made I would’ve burst out laughing.

This incident will fuel djokovic and he will end up with most grandslams at the end of his career
As I see how they reported all this, those jurnalis really don't like him.

Amanda Andrea Rose:
I told my mom about this. She told me even though he didn't mean to do this, he still could've not threw his anger. Honestly, he didn't mean to hurt that woman.
I read her lips through the mask. "Get your checkbook ready"

That wasn’t anger, c’mon.

I’m sorry for the injury ofc, but this was an accident.....

The ball wasn't even hit that hard. Mountain out of a molehill.
1) it was clearly a mistake, he didnt take aim or anything.

2) why did they hire line judges that have the same reaction speed as my late grandpa and working with balls travelling at over 100mph?

Edited: Granted, He did hit the ball unnecessarily hard but I think to throw him out was a bit harsh. We all make mistakes sometimes.

Their judgement shows inferiority complex more than "following rules". Like, if you don't have strength, just punish the strongest using stupid reasons

Absolutely right decision. We saw him acting like an asshole many times
I was hit in the balls by a tennis ball in school that someone kicked with their leg and I remember it hurt quite a bit but I didnt start whining and telling the person who did it should sit out...
Cant imagine the anger of Djoko, if that was a man he would stand up and he wouldnt be disqualified. But oh well.

leah jordan:
It clearly hit her collarbone at the most, she’s holding her entire throat like really??
Raji abey
Raji abey:
Most importantly that guy knows how to party 😂
Technically he’s still number 1 so all g and a line guard watches the line and the ball to see if it’s a foul but she obviously wasn’t watching
"In current news a new sport was invented today..."
I'd watch that shit every day.
Also anyone ever play "wall ball" aka "butts up" when they were a kid? I was 10 and we were throwing tennis balls as hard as we could trying to kill our close friends. Man up.
Post Script: Maybe if she had more experience taking things in the throat?...(insert laughter)
Imagine being hit by a tennis ball in a tennis match, what are the odds of that happening.

her reaction just made it hilarious 😂
П Ч:
It completely impossible that that woman couldn't continue with her work. These things happen all the time in sports where your air is knocked out of your lungs and/or you can't breathe for a few moments after a collision. Give the person a few minutes and he/she/it will be fine. This "injury" was just bullshit to get Djokovic defaulted without any reason.

Djokovic gunna get sued assault with a deadly weapon. Lawyers gonna love the ball lady

Y they keeping old ppl in the field's wrong on tennis council
sehaj mahajan
sehaj mahajan:
It was unintentional, yes. Absolutely, the line judge overreacted. But the rules specifically say that if you hit someone on court and if it is not part of the shot, you'll be disqualified. Djokovic has done this plenty of times. Not to mention, he was already on a ball abuse warning. RULES ARE RULES. This kind of shit exists so that people don't get hurt on the court.

Dear Nole Djokovic, I miss youll playing with your opponents in us open.

bruh overreacted, can you imagine a dude falling to the ground cuz of that? i mean sure could hurt but no dude would act as if he were dying, for the very least would not complain i mean you are standing on a fucking tennis court and got hit by a ball XD

Definitely a weighted tennis ball, to do that kind of damage.

Can we just acknowledge about how much of a man Djokovic was for leaving like a gentleman after knowing he had just been disqualified from the tournament and not complaining to the judges and umpire all while having being the most favored and likely to win the US Open

It was all planned. That lady was paid
Terry Havanka

She was wearing a mask? How'd the ball get through!?
Actually, I caught Novak once while he was practicing and there were at least 10 old grannies lined up so he could knock them down by hitting a ball with his racket. He didn't miss any. Must have been preparing for this event.

Jesus how much did she milk that. Seriously? She couldn’t carry on and had to go hospital! I don’t think she tried to get Novak disqualified. But I definitely think she made it look worse than it was.

Did he shot her by a gun !!
Nenad Mitic
Nenad Mitic:
Beware of beast from this moment. You haven't seen the best yet
He hit it towards her expecting her to catch it.
She must have been daydreaming. She was not doing her job, which is to pay attention to what is going on with the players.
