Tennis star expelled from French federation after on-court fights and referee outbursts | Tennis | Sport

It was also not the first time this year that Moutet had been involved in controversy, having been suspended in Adelaide earlier in the season for insulting a referee. The world number 64 lost the second set of his round of 16 match against Laslo Djere after winning the first set.

Frustrated, he lashed out at After, the official in the chair, yelling, “F*** you.” The supervisor was called onto the pitch during the change of wingers and breached Moutet, giving the Serb the victory. For now, Moutet remains at his home tournament at the Paris Masters after coming through qualifying to beat Cincinnati champion Borna Coric and now faces Cameron Norrie.
