Novak Djokovic has been accused by close friend and former women's tennis star Daniela Hantuchova of letting his anger get the better of him. 

Djokovic was disqualified from the US Open in dramatic on Sunday when he hit a ball to the back of the court which inadvertently struck line judge Laura Clark in the throat. 

Hantuchova, a former top five women's player, who was working as a pundit for Amazon Prime on the night Djokovic was kicked out of the tournament, said: 'It feels like sometimes the anger comes out of control.'
