Yes, I know. But good rules should allow for a little bit of common sense and not be implemented arbitrarily.It's the rules, automatic red card so to speak, as Tim Henman once found out.
If he had whacked it deliberately at the line judge with the aim of hurting her I would agree, but the chance in a million that

There has to be a little bit of tolerance for expressions of emotion. Most tennis players are already like robots - few characters in the game.
So for me one game should have been deducted, but not the whole match.
PS. I'm not particularly a Djokovic fan.
