Novak Djokovic’s time at the US Open is over after he made a dumb mistake while throwing a fit on the tennis court.

After going down 6-5 in the first set, a frustrated Djokovic casually smacked a ball in anger that went on to hit a line judge in the throat.

Djokovic knew he had messed up as soon as he hit the ball.

Djokovic went over to apologize afterward but the line judge did not look happy.

Officials eventually decided to default/DQ Djokovic from the US Open for his actions.
