The incident occurred during the fourth round match against the Spaniard Pablo Carreño Busta.
The game was stopped in the first set. According to Reuters, during the next pitch, Djokovic hit the ball without looking at it. The result was a hit in the line judge. The woman screamed in pain and fell.
The Serbian tennis player was disqualified for unsportsmanlike behavior. The victory went to the Spaniard with a score of 6:5.
Carreño Busta reached the quarter-finals, where he will meet with the winner of the match between Denis Shapovalov and David Goffen.
