Djokovic hit on the head by a bottle at the tournament in Rome

Shocking moment at the tournament in Rome: tennis superstar Novak Djokovic is hit by a water bottle. The world number one goes down

Tennis superstar Novak Djokovic has been hit on the head by a water bottle after winning the Masters 1000 tournament in Rome against Frenchman Corentin Moutet.

Videos on social media showed the 36-year-old Serb signing autographs for fans on his way out of the stadium and a bottle falling on his head. The world number one then fell to the ground and grabbed the back of his head. A short time later, attendants escorted him to the catacombs.

Djokovic had previously won the match against Moutet in Rome’s Foro Italico with ease 6:3, 6:1. The 24-time Grand Slam champion thus advanced to the third round, where he will now face Alejandro Tabilo from Chile, the conqueror of Yannick Hanfmann from Karlsruhe.

Drink bottle accidentally dropped on Djokovic?

The organizers of the tennis tournament in the Italian capital announced in the evening that Djokovic had been treated with appropriate medication and had already left the Foro Italico to return to his hotel. His condition is not a cause for concern. A statement said that the water bottle had probably fallen on the six-time winner of the tournament by accident and had not been thrown at him on purpose.

Users on social media were worried about Djokovic after the incident. He remained on the ground for several seconds after the incident. It was initially assumed that the bottle had been thrown at him on purpose. German former tennis pro Boris Becker commented on the video on X as follows: “Disgusting behavior from someone. “
