Many might argue that Nick has been at the receiving end for multiple on-court violations and activities in his career. Despite that, his point can’t be ignored about the incident.
In his defence, the Serbian Novak Djokovic had tried to reason his way through after profusely apologizing to the line-judge whom he hit by the ball on the throat.

However, courtesy of the Grand Slam rulebook which says:
“In all cases of default, the decision of the referee in consultation with the Grand Slam chief of supervisors shall be final and unappealable”, Djokovic was almost immediately disqualified for the incident.
Novak Djokovic slammed over US Open Controversy
After the incident, Instead of facing up to the incident in the press, the 17-time grand slam champion and number one ranked got in a car and drove-off straight afterwards, which did not go well for experts and for fans.
“Unfortunately he’s compounding the error. He needs to face up to it, apologise and accept he made a mistake,” former British star Tim Henman took charge on Djokovic on Prime Video’s coverage.
“By, in essence, running away, it’s going to go on longer.”
On stance, another British star Greg Rusedski agreed with Henman’s point. He, on Twitter, insisting Djokovic needed answer questions about the incident.
“This was the correct decision under the rules regardless of intent or not. Novak should have stayed for the press conference & apologised,” he tweeted.
“We must take responsibility for our actions no matter how difficult the situation is.”
