Boris Becker said Novak Djokovic would bounce back from disqualification at the US Open.
“I’m as shocked as anybody,” Becker said.
“The ball was hit in the lineswoman’s throat, she fell backwards and she was looking for air.
“This wasn’t intentional, he didn’t want to hit the line judge, but he did hit the ball and those are the rules.
“The supervisors came on and we could feel very early that they only had one choice in this case.
“The biggest star of the US Open has left the tournament – [it was] a tough decision, but they made the right call.”
