  • Umpire’s chair with racquet after losing Mexican Open match

    Alexander Zverev came perilously close to striking the chair umpire with his racquet after he lost his doubles match at the Mexican Open late on Tuesday.

    Germany’s Zverev was withdrawn from the ATP 500 tournament in Acapulco, Mexico, for “unsportsmanlike conduct” after his doubles match, the men’s tour said on Wednesday.

    Zverev, partnering Brazilian tennis player Marcelo Melo, came perilously close to hitting an umpire when he repeatedly assaulted the umpire’s chair with his racquet after a 6-2 4-6 (10-6) defeat to Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara.

    Immediately after the players’ customary post-match handshake, Zverev was seen slamming his racquet against the umpire’s chair multiple times, coming very close to hitting the umpire. He can bee seen shouting relentlessly at the umpire.

    Zverev was angered by an umpiring call during the tiebreak. In rage, the German started hurling abuse at the umpire.

    Earlier, Daniil Medvedev continued his pursuit of the No. 1 ranking with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Benoit Paire to move into the second round at the Mexican Open.

    The Umpire's chair with racquet after losing Mexican Open match is a unique piece of tennis equipment. The chair was created by the umpire who lost the match and it was made to commemorate the event. The chair is a replica of the one that the umpire used during the match, and it has a racquet attached to it. The racquet is meant to represent the umpire's anger after losing the match.
