However, he clarified, 'I definitely didn’t want to hit the ball at anybody. Just happened. Fortunate not to get a bigger fine. On the other hand, unfortunate to actually have that incident happen. I have to be more careful I guess in the future. Of course people get hit, especially in the first rows, from big serves and so forth. It happens. It’s not the first time. This is something that definitely cannot happen from my side. I accept the consequence, absolutely.'
