Canadian tennis player Denis Shapovalov did not reach the winning end of a well-played semifinal in St. Petersburg with home team Andrei Rublyov. Despite winning in the first set, the match eventually lost 6: 4, 3: 6 and 4: 6. He vented his frustration on one of the fans.
When he lost the service in the third set at 2: 2, he attacked one of the fans in the auditorium, who, in his opinion, disturbed him. “Go away. Get out of here! “Shouted the Canadian.
Then he repeated the same in Russian. Although he is a native of Tel Aviv, his parents are of Russian descent.
“Denise, you can’t shout at fans like that here. Leave it to me, I’ll deal with it, “he appealed to Shapoval’s angry referee.
Rubljov increased his chances of advancing to the London Champions Tournament, where his compatriot Daniil Medvedev also fought his way through, by advancing to the finals, in which he will challenge Born Čorič.
