Ymer, 24, claimed a shot from opponent Arthur Fils went wide but the referee dismissed his appeal on the grounds that it was too late after missing the call.

The umpires further angered Ymer by refusing to get up from his chair to check the mark.

The tennis star then hit the referee’s chair with his racket, which completely shattered it.

Then he went to his chair and threw the handle back onto the pitch in disgust.

Ymer stayed in his seat for a few minutes before being told he had to leave as he had been disqualified.

The clip of the incident went viral social mediawith tennis fans reacting to Ymer’s actions.

A viewer said: “Ymer was wrong when he banged on the umpire’s chair.”

“However, the referee should also be disqualified for refusing to get up from his high chair to confirm the spot and justify his call.”


A second tweeted: “Even if the referee made a mistake that’s totally unacceptable.”

A third commented: “I don’t apologize for the outburst but why is the referee too lazy to come in for a quick check and then it’ll be all settled.”

A fourth added: “Bad reaction but why didn’t he check that out? I’ve never experienced that either.”

Fils will now advance to the quarter-finals of the tournament and meet Canadian star Felix Auger Aliassime.
