Djokovic says he is working on the mental aspect of tennis as he discloses that on Monday from Rome, where he will be competing in the Italian Open this week
I understand that I have outbursts and it’s the personality and kind of player that I have always been.
He also said that:
Obviously I went through ups and downs in my career, managing to control my emotions more or less.
But you’re alone out there, it’s a lot of intensity, a lot of pressure, and you have to deal with all of that.
Djokovic had a lengthy conversations on Monday for the first time since he was disqualified in the fourth round of the U S Open tournament.
Still in play for the first set against Pablo Carreño Busta, Djokovic hit a ball about 40 feet, from the court toward a back wall, where it hit a line judge on the throat.
After an expansive conversation with the tournament officials, he was disqualified, upending the men’s singles draw.

The rules are clear when it comes to that, I accepted it, and I had to move on.

Dominic Thiem, came second, he beat Alexander Zverev for the title on Sunday night in a thriller that ended with a tiebreaker in the fifth set.
Djokovic admitted that his disqualification, although was unlucky, was “not completely out of the blue”.
Adding his propensity for expressing anger on the court, which has sometimes included being reckless with equipment.
At the 2016 French Open, he swiped his racket in anger and it slipped out of his hand, just missing the line judge he could have been disqualified, but he went on to win the tournament his only French Open victory.
Later that season, he quibbled with a reporter at the ATP Finals after hitting a ball into the stands without hitting anyone.
The reporter said it could have been dangerous for spectators.
Djokovic said at the time, bristling at the reporter’s suggestion that the behavior might be part of a pattern.
It could have snowed in O2 Arena, as well, but it didn’t.
His defense then appeared to be much different from his attitude on Monday, when he said he was
Really sorry to cause the shock and drama for the line judge who was hit.
She didn’t deserve that in any way,” he said.
She obviously is volunteering as well and doing her work.
She loves tennis, and she’s been there, as I understood, for quite a few years.
He stopped short of guaranteeing something similar would not happen in future tournaments, but said that he would certainly remember it and learn from his mistakes.
He also said.
I don’t think I’ll have any major issues coming back to the tour and being able to perform well and hit the tennis ball of course, during the point.Djokovic says he is working on the mental aspect of tennis

Djokovic said of Nadal.
The 2019 US Open champion who skipped an attempt at a repeat because of the Covid 19 pandemic.
