Tennis bad boy Tennys Sandgren has been kicked out of a Challenger event, defaulting on a match that ended in farcical scenes.
The fiery American was No. 1 for the Atlantic Tire Championship Challenger event in Cary, and he looked comfortable in his first lap clash with Christopher Eubanks.
Sandgren had broken his opponent in the first game and was leading 40-30 in the second when he hit a forehand long.
The player was frustrated and his anger boiled over when a ball kid bounced a ball at him that accidentally hit him right in the genitals (he posted a vision of that moment in the tweet below).
The American snatched angrily at the ball, which flew off his racket and hit a linesman in the back.
Sandgren was immediately given notice of default and his opponent got the most unusual win.
Sandgren later took to Twitter to laugh at the incident and acknowledged that he had been mistaken in his actions.
“To be clear, this was all my fault,” Sandgren wrote in a post along with a vision of the incident.
