Djokovic returned from NY to his base in Spain to practice before going to Italy and admitted that the last week has been a sobering experience, following his default for hitting a line judge with a ball in his Flushing Meadows fourth round.

"So sometimes the situations like this happen".

I can not promise or can not guarantee that I will never ever do anything similar to that in my life.

"I'm trying to be the best version of myself on the court and off the court and I understand that I have outbursts and this is kind of the personality and the player that I have always been".

World number one Novak Djokovic has said he "cannot promise" he'll never get disqualified for bad behavior again, despite saying he'd learned his lesson from the US Open.

The Serbian was defaulted out of the Grand Slam in the fourth round earlier this month after he accidentally struck a female line judge in the throat with a ball which he had batted away in frustration.

"Novak was unlucky. The rules says clearly that's a default", Nadal told reporters at the Italian Open.

"Of course it was very hard for me to accept right after it happened", continued the 33-year-old.

World number two Rafael Nadal, bidding for a 10th Rome title, said he was "sorry" for Djokovic, adding "it's important to have the right self-control on the court, because if not, you can be unlucky as he was". I'm going to try my best, obviously, but anything is possible in life'.

Djokovic's NY default was his first defeat in 2020.

The Serb was responsible for organizing the Adria Tour, an un-socially distanced exhibition event that ended prematurely after numerous players - including Djokovic himself - contracted the coronavirus, while he also faced widespread criticism after saying he was "opposed to vaccination".

Men's players are staying at the five-star Rome Cavalieri, which overlooks the city center from a hilltop.

"Of course I am not flawless, I have flaws".

'I came into the fourth round feeling really good and hitting the ball really nicely, and ready in every aspect. It was very unexpected and very unintended as well, to hit her. But when you hit the ball like that as I hit it to have a chance to hit someone who is on the court and the rules are clear when it comes to that.

The Spaniard will return to action for the first time in six months when he takes on his fellow countryman Carreno Busta in Rome.

"It's good to have a tournament that comes a week, 10 days later".
