It was not an easy day at the office for Denis Shapovalov. At a decisive moment in his match against Spanish Roberto Carballés Baena for the second round of Roland Garros, the mark of a pique unleashed controversy and fury on the part of the Canadian.
What ended up being a defeat for the current world number 10 by 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 3-6 and 8-6 against the European, ended badly for the eccentric left-hander due to the discussion he held for the mark of a pique with the umpire Carlos Ramos.
Such was the controversy generated around the brand and, ultimately, to resume the discussion of whether or not brick dust tournaments should have a hawk’s eye, Shapovalov retweeted and commented on a photo in which it is seen, thanks to the technology, that the ball had been bad.
“When will we have a hawk’s eye in brick dust?” tweet in which, in addition, he threw the ball to the official ATP Twitter account.
