The disqualification of world number one Novak Djokovic at the US Open was “without a doubt the right decision,” says former British number one Tim Henman.

The 33-year-old Serbian was suspended after hitting a linesman with the ball in Sunday’s fourth-round match against Pablo Carreño Busta in New York. After a long discussion, it was defaulted by the tournament officials.

However, the Serb apologized saying that he “is very sorry to have caused him so much stress,” adding: “This whole situation has left me really sad and empty.

“I checked the linesman and the tournament told me that thank goodness he feels good. “I’m so sorry I caused you so much stress. So involuntary. So wrong.”

Henman told Amazon Prime: “He wasn’t targeting the official, but you are responsible for his actions,” adding, “There was no other consequence. We saw a couple of points earlier when he hit the ball against the billboards. He was frustrated. “.

Henman himself suffered the same fate in 1995 when he accidentally hit a ball in the ear in a men’s doubles at Wimbledon, as did another player, David Nalbandian, when he kicked a billboard in the shin of a linesman in the final. from the Queen’s Club in 2012.
