The World Number 1 tennis player, Novak Djokovic has come under intense scrutiny today after a ball girl was reputedly “left in tears” when he took his frustration of missing a shot out on her.
The Serbian tennis star was playing the 6ft 8 South African Kevin Anderson when he missed a point in his service game, and literally turned to the ball girl and screamed “TOWEL”.
The girl took the full brunt of his outcry, which he claims “was nothing to do with her, but I can see why she was scared. I’ll say sorry to her if I did something wrong”.
This is not the first time he has yelled at a ball kid. Earlier this year, he roared into the face of a ball boy who was just handing him his towel. He later issued a video apology for the incident.
