Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic will lose the points and the awards money that had been added during the US Open because of his Sunday disqualification in the round of 16, the organizers reported.
“Djokovic will lose all the points rankings won in the US Open and it will be fined with money earned in prize money at the tournament, in addition to any or all fines imposed in connection with the incident, “said the United States Federation tennis in a statement.
The world number one was removed this Sunday from the tournament by throw a ball against a linesman during the round of 16 match against the Spanish Pablo Carreño.
Frustrated after losing his serve to Carreño, who gave the Spaniard a 6-5 lead in the first set, Djokovic took out a ball pocket and threw it towards the wall, striking, apparently involuntarily, on the neck a linesman, who had to receive medical attention.
