Djokovic: cannot guarantee he will never be disqualified again

Djokovic: cannot guarantee he will never be disqualified again”

The tournament at the Foro Italico was rescheduled from May because of the pandemic and will be played without fans in attendance.

"Obviously, it's not the same thing".

Spain's clay-court king Rafael Nadal called for caution on Monday with the French Open set to be played in front of spectators later this month despite coronavirus concerns.

On Aug. 20, after five months of postponed and cancelled tournaments, tennis was finally back on for the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and Women's Tennis Association (WTA).

"Excited to be back".

"He's playing great", Nadal said.

Professional tennis was shut down from March until early August.

Nadal lauded the US Open's eventual victor, Dominic Thiem, for earning a first Grand Slam title in NY.

The first tournament since the shutdown, the Western & Southern Open, normally held in Cincinnati, was played without fans in the U.S. Open site in NY.

"I understand that I have outbursts and this is the personality and the player I have always been".

"But here I am". That's what I am doing.

"I checked on Laura after the match". Let's see how the virus evolves the next couple of weeks.

Nadal said that Djokovic's reckless actions had put him in the position to be defaulted. "He always finds a way every single year".

The world number one was disqualified from his last-16 match against Pablo Carreno Busta after striking a linesperson with the ball.

"It was totally unexpected and very unintended but, when you hit the ball like that, you have a chance to hit somebody that is on the court".

"The rules are clear, so I accepted it, and I had to move on". I'm definitely going to try my best that something like that never happens again, obviously, but anything is possible in life.

Djokovic had been unbeaten this year before his US Open exit and is targeting a title he last won in 2015. "It is important to have the right self-control on the court because, if not, you can be unlucky as he was".

Rafael Nadal disagrees with Novk Djokovic that the time is right to form a new Professional Tennis Players Association.

"It's going to be adjustment challenge, you know, how quickly can we adapt, how quickly can we adjust to this new surface". Whilst the Serbian will without a doubt win again, the events which unfolded in NY have given him cause to reflect on his behaviour on court.

Serena Williams, suffering from an Achilles tendon problem, and US Open champion Naomi Osaka will also skip the Rome event.

The number one seed had also flashed his temper two games prior when he fired a ball at an advertising board, after failing to convert three set points.

"I'm going to take this in as profound as possible for me as a big lesson".

"Everything is really well taken care of".
