On Friday, a huge upset occurred in the ongoing French Open competitions as the world's sixth seed Andrey Rublev was knocked out from the competitions' Round 3.

Rublev had a very harsh argument with umpire Lazemar Engzell over the mark left by a disputed line call during the second set against Matteo Arnaldi.

Rublev was really enraged, smashing his racket to the ground and screaming towards the players’ box. He also repeatedly kicked his seat.

The early exit for the world number six was after his a 7-6 (6) 6-2 6-4 defeat to 23-year-old Italian Arnaldi.

Rublev said: “Completely disappointed with myself the way I behaved, the way I performed, and I don’t remember behaving worse on a slams ever,” adding: “I think it was first time I ever behaved that bad.

“I think it’s not about concentration. I think it’s because the way I behave I put myself completely down, and I give Matteo wings to fly, and he was flying in the third set unbelievable. It was too late to do something.”
