I'm interested in what pro's like Federer and Nadal has to say. As well as ex pro's like McEnroe...Are they just smiling behind the scenes or did they react?

Fed will be diplomatic, but I'm pretty sure he's getting tired of Novak continuing to make headlines for all the wrong reasons.

This from Tim Mayotte


Billie Jean King:


Greg Rusedski


Brad Gilbert seems to have changed his mind:


But this one probably settles it - Paul McNamee has been very active on Twitter defending Djoko and even he doesn't really attempt it on this one.


And he retweeted this:


I'd say pretty much no professional in the game is attempting to defend it.

Fed and Nadal will keep their mouths shut. Why on earth would they say anything?

Bolded part ^

Because it was justified, or because they too want to *arguably* climb on the "Djokovic witch hunt bandwagon"?

We have to admit, whether he deserves it or not, so many people conform for their own personal reasons. The Tim tweet just plugs himself as being a coach and he may as well have left his contact details.

How would people have reacted if no on knew it was Djokovic? And if this was judged anonymously?

Well, given that Nalbandian and Henman were both disqualified for similar incidents pretty much the same.

Paul McNamee was virtually the only person supporting Novak over the Adria Tour thing so if even he isn't putting up a defence then I think we can conclude that professional opinion is pretty unanimous.

Nalbandian incident was very different.
 
At first I missed the hitting moment, I though she collapsed due to heat or something, only when they showed the reply I understood why novak looked so pressed about it. The moment I understood what happened I knew he was going to be disqualified. Not the way I hoped his streak and uso to end but it is what it is.
