The French Corentin Moutet had a heated physical altercation with his opponent, the Bulgarian Adrian Andreev, Thursday in the second round of the Challenger at the Orleans Open.
No, Benoît Paire does not have the monopoly of freaking out in French tennis. Corentin Moutet is also hot-blooded. The 23-year-old player (64th player in the world) showed it Thursday after the second round of the Challenger at the Orleans Open. Opposed to the Bulgarian Adrian Andreev, the tricolor tennis player, beaten in three sets, came to blows during a very tense handshake and a bit too manly. The two players had a brief physical altercation before the referee separated them.
He doesn’t want to apologize
“I don’t want to apologize for what happened at the end of the match,” commented Moutet, who cannot digest his opponent’s attitude. When a player allows himself to say “fuck you” twice while looking me in the eye, I can’t help but make him understand in my own way that these are not things that are done”, wrote the French on Instagram.
“He threatened me and asked me to wait for him at the exit of the court”
And to continue: “You applauded this player at the end of the match. Perhaps for you these are acceptable things. For me not. In any case he threatened me and asked me to wait for him at the out of the court. Which I obviously did. I had trouble finding her for 10 minutes. Indeed, he was hidden on the other side behind six security people. I heard your threats, so when you come out of the room where they hid you I will be very happy to see you realize them. So I am waiting for you impatiently, we can discuss calmly.”
