Corentin Moutet is furious: "I don't want to apologize!"

Rarely, however, the two tennis players have reached the physical confrontation, altered during or at the end of the match. It all happened during the match valid for the Round of 16 of the Challenger in Orleans, France. The number one seeded Corentin Moutet fell in three sets against the young Bulgarian tennis player, born in 2001, Adrian Andreev.

Moutet dominated the first set but fell in the other two partials, in a match that resulted in a brawl at the end of the match. It is not the first time that Moutet has been involved in such situations, but it is the first time that even physical confrontation has occurred.

The chair umpire was forced to intervene to separate the two players.

Corentin Moutet furious: "I don't want to apologize!"

Moutet did not at all like the behavior of the opponent, current number 247 in the world rankings, and shortly after the end of the match he vented on social media, even increasing the dose and threatening the opponent.

It all started with Andreev giving Moutet a strong push and Moutet reacted by responding and pushing hard. A quarrel that did not go unnoticed at all and Moutet who published a post on Instagram. Here are his words. Words that are anything but similar to an apology and therefore a story not yet completely finished..

A complex situation which will have controvery also in teh next days: "I absolutely do not want to apologize for what I did. When a player allows himself to send me to fans twice by looking me in the eye, I can only make him understand that these things are not good.

He threatened me and asked me to wait for him when he left the court. Of course, I showed up while he waited on the other side hidden behind six security guards. I have heard your threats, so when you leave your room I would be very happy if you could bring them back to me again. I'm waiting for you with impatience, we can talk calmly."
