Djokovic claimed his 67th career trophy with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 victory over Andy Murray on Saturday, but was warned by umpire Carlos Bernardes after hitting a ball away in anger, which bounced before striking a courtside spectator.
Djokovic was later docked a point for breaking a racket.
Djokovic apologized after the game and said he would accept any sanctions, adding that he had no intention to hit the woman.
“I definitely didn’t want to hit the ball at anybody. Just happened,” he told a post-match press conference. “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.”
Djokovic said that he did not see the ball hit the spectator, but would “pay my consequences for that.”
“I accept that I made a mistake,” he said.
“It was not intentional at all. 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, I mean, from my side. I accept the consequence, absolutely.”
