After a long chat with the tournament officials, Djokovic was disqualified.

“It had a previous situation in 1995. We were ahead two sets in the doubles. I hit a ball-girl by mistake in the ear.
“Djokovic did not aim for the line judge, but he must be responsible for his actions.
“This is the only possible result.”

Davis Cup Captain Leon Smith added: “I was shocked that he was not warned for the first one earlier.
