Nick Kyrgios Reacts To Novak Djokovic Hitting A Line Judge In The Throat With Ball

Nick Kyrgios Reacts To Novak Djokovic Hitting A Line Judge In The Throat With Ball

It didn't take long for Nick Kyrgios to react to Novak Djokovic's US Open disqualification for hitting a line judge in the throat with a ball.

Chasing his 18th Grand Slam in New York, the world number one let frustrations get the better of him when behind 6-5 in the opening set of his fourth-round clash against Pablo Carreno Busta,

The Serbian pulled out a ball from his pocket and fired in the direction of the lineswoman, hitting her square in the throat.

Despite his protestations with officials, Djokovic's tournament is over and he will lose all ranking points earned at the US Open, as well as being hit with a fine.

However, Kyrgios clearly feels the punishment would be much more severe if he was the culprit .

The Aussie took to Twitter to post a poll, his caption reading: "Swap me for jokers incident. 'Accidentally hitting the ball kid in the throat' how many years would I be banned for?"

The three options on the poll were 5 years, 10 years or 20 years, an obvious but not surprising exaggeration from Kyrgios. If you're interested, 20 years is currently winning after garnering 52% of the 146,000 votes cast.

With no social distancing observed in the tournament, there was also footage of Djokovic dancing in a nightclub with other players on social media prior to his positive test and Kyrgios was highly critical of him as a result.

As he did with the Adria Tour debacle, Djokovic has apologised for his behaviour and vows to learn from the situation.
