“I feel ashamed” – Sports –

The end of the Davis Cup tennis match between Canada and Great Britain was unexpected. Canadian Denis Shapovalov, in frustration, hit the ball directly into the head umpire’s face, resulting in a disqualification. Great Britain thus won the match 3-2 in matches.

The 17-year-old Shapovalov lost his nerve when he dropped his serve at the beginning of the third set. He hit that ball It caught the attention of French referee Arnaud Gaba.

At that stage, Britain’s Kyle Edmund topped the match in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, 2-1.

Fortunately, he is fine, but of course my behavior was unacceptable, says Shapovalov.

“I let my team down”

The young Canadian is considered one of the biggest promises in the world of tennis. Last summer, he won the junior Wimbledon championship.

He was very embarrassed after the Davis Cup debacle.

– I feel ashamed because I betrayed my team, my country and myself. I acted in a way I never wished I would.

-I promise you this was the last time I would do something like this. “I will learn my lesson and move on,” he says.

His colleague defended

The Davis Cup tennis match ended in a 2-2 draw after Canadian Vasek Pospisil defeated Britain’s Dan Evans in the first match on Sunday.

Pospisil defended his teammate on Twitter after the match.

– There is no one cuter and better behaved at 17 years old than Shapovalov. Everyone can see that what happened today was wrong. Pospisil writes that this can happen to anyone.
