Corentin Moutet really surprised everyone during the round of 16 at the ATP 250 in Naples. The Frenchman suddenly decided to stop the match against Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic, in which he was losing 5-3 in the first set, and withdraw due to conditions that he considered borderline and quite dangerous.
Corentin Moutet throws a racket and retires due to the conditions of the court!
The 23-year-old, before going to talk to the chair umpire, threw a racket against the wall out of nervousness at having lost a point. With the near miss at the Challenger in Orleans shelved, Moutet was once again the talk of the main circuit with this episode.
ATP Napoli was definitely a tournament to forget for the organizers, due to all the problems and the many complaints about the organization from the tennis players. Here is the video of what happened in Campania, spread on social networks.
