The disqualification of the Serbian at the US Open for untimely ball on a linesman has unleashed passions on the networks, and it seems that some oddballs have decided to attack the victim on the networks.
Well yes, after all, what was she doing on the way to the ball of her holiness Novak?
Suddenly, Nole flew to the aid of the latter, urging his fans to be kind.
In a tweet, world number 1 Djokovic thanked his fans for their positive messages, while stressing that the judge, hit in the throat after the Serbian's moody gesture, had "done nothing wrong", unlike the critics accusing the official of having exaggerated the nature of his injury by collapsing to the ground.
Dear #NoleFam thank you for your positive messages .. Please also remember the linesperson that was hit by the ball last night needs our community's support too.
She's done nothing wrong at all.
I ask you to stay especially supportive and caring to her during this time.

“Also remember, please, that the linesman who was hit by the bullet last night (Sunday) also needs the support of our community,” wrote the 33-year-old Serb.
“She didn't do anything wrong, at all.
I ask you to remain courteous to her and support her during this period ”.
