World No. 1 Novak Djokovic Disqualified From US Open

  • World No. 1 Novak Djokovic was disqualified from the US Open after striking a line judge with a ball during his fourth-round match.
  • This marked a stunning end to his 29-match winning streak and bid for an 18th Grand Slam title.
  • His departure means there is no male player left in the field who has won a Grand Slam singles title. Whoever emerges as champion will be the first first-time major trophy winner in men's tennis since 2014, when Marin Cilic won the US Open.
