Djokovic: "I apologize; I must turn this into a lesson"

Novak Djokovic, who did not give a press conference, published a message on social networks: "This whole situation has left me really sad and empty," says the Serbian.


A few hours after being expelled from his round of 16 match against Pablo Carreño and consequently from the US Open, Novak Djokovic, who immediately left the Billie Jean King Center in New York without going through the press room, published a brief message from repentance and "apologies" in social networks where he showed his regret for what happened, which he describes as "involuntary" and his purpose of making it serve as a "lesson" for him, his "growth and evolution as a player and a human being".The Serbian, who will not be able to close the gap in the US Grand Slam in terms of Grand Slams titles with Federer and Nadal, said he regretted "very much" having caused so much stress on the court attendant, whose name he did not want to reveal.

This is the full translation of her message, published in English and Serbo-Croatian: "This whole situation has left me really sad and empty. I asked about the person on the line and the tournament told me that thank God she was feeling fine. I'm sorry So much for causing you so much stress. So involuntary. So wrong. I will not reveal your name to respect your privacy. Regarding disqualification, I need to search inside myself and work on my disappointment, to turn all this into a lesson for my growth and evolution as a player and a human being. I apologize to the @usopen tournament and to everyone involved in it for my behavior. I am very grateful to my team and my family for being my great support, and to my fans for always being with me. Thank you and I'm sorry a lot. "
