Bizarre situation lived in the ATP Challenger Cary 2021, with the disqualification in the second game of the match of Tennys Sandgren, while facing Christopher Eubanks. The first of the American players committed one of the most serious fouls that can be committed on a tennis court, which is attacking a chair umpire. He did it after hitting the ball while walking to pick up a ball, and his blow to the fence hit the referee.
So tonight I got hit in the nuts by a ball kid toss with a little too much mustard, slapped the wayward ball into the fence, which collided with a refs tushy as he was walking to the other side, resulting in a default.
