Incredible moment tennis star lets loose about Rafael Nadal’s waste of time on the field

Incredible moment Oz Open tennis star calls chair umpire CORRUT in extraordinary outburst on field against Nadal

  • Canadian tennis star Denis Shapovalov has lost his composure at the Australian Open
  • Accused chair umpire of being corrupt mid-game against Spain’s Rafael Nadal
  • Nadal then tried to spread the ugly turn of events with the fiery young gun










Canadian tennis star Denis Shapovalov imploded on the Australian Open court, accusing an experienced chair umpire of corruption.

The extraordinary outburst happened on Tuesday afternoon during the young gun’s center court match against Rafael Nadal.

Nadal notoriously takes time between his serves and he clearly enraged the 14th seed in Melbourne Park.

Tired of the special treatment of his opponents, Shapovalov told referee president Carlos Bernardes: “You looked at the clock so long ago and he is still not ready to play,” he said.

You have to code it.’

Bernardes was not interested in Shapovalov’s complaint and was quick to respond with: “He (Nadal) is not ready to play.”

Shapovalov: ‘Are you kidding me? You are all corrupt’.

Spanish star Nadal then tried to stagger the situation as tensions quickly mounted.

Australian tennis player Todd Woodbridge said Nadal showed all his experience in the fiery showdown.

‘Rafa came to him with authority, as if to say, ‘Now son, come here’ and kindly extended his hand to say, ‘We have no problems. Just go back and play and we’ll make it all happen,” he said in a commentary to Channel Nine.

“It was like a senior diffuse moment. Many other players would have gone much faster than Rafa.’

Fellow commentator and two-time Australian Open winner Jim Courier was stunned by Shapovalov’s outburst.

“That won’t make him favor with the chair umpire either, not make friends with her,” he told viewers for free.

Nadal takes command with a two-set lead as the pair battle for a spot in the semi-finals.
