Following Serbian superstar Novak Djokovic’s disqualification from the 2020 U.S. Open, Paige Spiranac posted a cryptic tweet on the incident. The golf beauty spoke on how a similar incident in golf would be waved off with a signature memorabilia.

The tweet caused an uproar among both tennis and golf fans. Many debated that the action wouldn’t be condemned in golf, while others argued over related incidents in the past.

That’s a tennis ball , right? Christ, she went down more dramatic then the Titanic!

The story goes that TW could aim so extremely well in his glory days that he hit a golf ball at someone he liked, landing it painlessly gently on her and then handed over a signed glove, with his phone number on it😳🤭🤪🤩🤫🤓😊

Suck it up, its a a rubber ball. Looks like she was shot. Very unplayoff like. Boooooooo

The late reaction from the blind man in this scene was always the funniest part to me. Sandler doesn’t make them like he used to.

If the ball he hit was part of a rally, then yes, but it wasn’t. If this was golf and you hit a ball into someone between one green and the next tee, I don’t think a signed glove would cover it.

Some over reaction that was….. he didn’t shoot her, it was just a tennis ball ffs 😡

She better have her eyes checked. She’s a tennis judge at the US Open and she couldn’t get out of the way of a ball hit at 40% from 50 feet away.

However, the tweet re-ignited the raging debate on Djokovic’s disqualification. The 21-time Grand Slam champion was kicked out of the tournament for lack of sportsmanship. The cause? A misfortune during the match that caused mayhem.

On what grounds was Novak Djokovic disqualified?

For the unversed, Djokovic was contesting in round of 16 of the 2020 U.S. Open against Spaniard Pablo Carrena Busta. After conceding a minor lead in the first set, the Serbian failed to hold his disappointment together.

A gentle whip of the ball meant for the empty stands, struck a lineswoman, which provided enough reasoning to oust the former champion.

While the woman in question wasn’t hurt badly, tournament referee, Soeren Friemel decided to declare a default. He anticipated the case as breaching Section T of Article III, which hands officials to take matters into their own hands.

It meant the 3-time winner of the tournament was unable to add to his remarkable year, in which he won the Australian Open and was within touching distance of securing the French Open. While Djokovic was disappointed yet decided not to raise the issue further, it brought about thousands of reactions to become the focal point across the tournament.
