Novak Djokovic

Probably the right decision, but seems harsh considering all players return the balls to the end they have been serving from when they are changing ends. If the authorities don't like that then surely the players should be supportive of one another. At the end of a service game, they should just place their spare ball on the court and walk off and leave the ball persons to run on the court and retrieve the balls. Just don't try and be helpful.

Yes but they don't belt them as hard as possible.

If Novak had hit it as hard as possible, she would be in a coma!

Definitely the right decision bristle. Rules are rules. He shouldn't have done it. He'll be regretting it for a long time.

The line judge was a bit of a wimp but I guess they have to set an example!
