FLASHBACK: Moutet faces Nadal in the second round of Roland Garros
The ATP has fined France's Corentin Moutet and Bulgarian Adrian Andreev 10,000 Euros each for unsportsmanlike conduct a week ago at the ATP Challenger event in Orléans.
The pair got into a shoving match following their meeting in the second round, and had to be separated by the umpire on court.
Ranked No. 64, Moutet lost the three-set encounter 2-6, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (2)—which came just a week following another three-set victory for Andreev at another Challenger in Genoa.
"Maybe it was a consequence of what happened in Genoa, but I don't know." said Moutet’s coach Laurent Raymond to L’Equipe. “After the match point, it was Andreev who landed the first blow on the shoulder… Corentin told me that he had told him 'Fuck you' twice during the match.
“There was a fight at the net. The chair referee separated them. They wanted to see each other after the game but could not get close."
Both players have accused the other of confrontational behavior before the incident. On social media, Moutet said he did not want to apologize since his opponent swore at him twice during their encounter in Genoa.
Andreev's account, given to press at Orléans, was that he had received repeated taunts from the Frenchman.
"In Italy, he kept talking to me and asking, what's your problem," added Andreev. "I don't have a problem with him."
The ATP Tour has not given the players a suspension.
