Novak Djokovic got into it with chair umpire Carlos Ramos today during a tougher-than-expected third round win over Diego Schwartzman.

Ramos hit Djokovic with an unsportsmanlike conduct warning late in the fourth for his attitude toward the chair.

Djokovic ended up dropping his serve that game but then rolled breaking right back and taking the fifth 61. And he commented after that the struggle will do him some good.

“Sometimes you need to be challenged in order for certain things to surface, which maybe are not surfacing if you’re winning comfortably,” Djokovic said. “That’s going to happen more as I go deeper in the tournament because the matches and opponents are going to get tougher,” said Djokovic. “I didn’t play too many five-setters the past couple of years. I see a lot of good things in it. I think it will put me in a good place mentally as well.”

Djokovic meets Albert Ramos-Vinolas on Sunday.

Wog Boy Says:

So, what did Nole do to deserve warning?


chrisford1 Says:

Made a big deal about a line call, screaming, then gestured with his racket in the direction of the chair, in the opinion of Umpire Ramos.
Warning was proper. Djokovic has dome it before on line calls on a big point he feels were wrong and disadvantaged him. Some times he gets away with such antics, other times, no.


Margot Says:

TBH Chris, I’m quite fed up with all the players, not just Nole, throwing hissy fits at the chair. Waste of time, the chair never gives an inch. Reminds me of Mac in his heydays.
Hawkeye is more than overdue at RG.


Willow Says:

I Dont blame Novak for losing it, agree with Margot that HE at RG is long overdue ….


Sang Says:

The 2 time violation warnings were unnecessary considering Nadal hardly ever gets warned!!! No consistency at all with all the umpires. The unsportsmanlike warning was totally WRONG!
I watched the match and Djokovic was frustrated with himself (errors) and gesticulated throwing the ball (in the direction of the umpire? Well it is completely subjective!) but objectively NO! How can that be considered unsportsmanlike? When Nole asked what he said he umpire said it was ‘your attitude’!!! Since when is an attitude considered a crime?
The umpire feels and wants to exert his authority and tell the world that he is the boss!
I am an umpire too and I would never make that ruling! All players have an attitude. If attitude can warrant a warning Murray would never be able to complete a match the way he mumbles and swears!!!!
It was wrong and Nole had every right to argue with the prima donna umpire.
