Novak Djokovic, the clear favorite for the men’s singles title is out of the competition via default. Djokovic, the world No. 1, accidentally hit a line judge in the neck with the ball. Players who hit another person on the court automatically are disqualified from the competition.

Pablo Carreno Busta, the No. 20 seed and a 2017 semifinalist, will advance to the quarterfinals. The score of the first set was 6-5. There will be a new Grand Slam men’s singles champion for the first time in six years.

Chair umpire Aurelie Tourte made the announcement to an empty stadium — no fans are allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic — after Djokovic went over to shake hands with Carreno Busta.

Djokovic will lose all ranking points and be fined the prize money he won for reaching the round of 16.
