Tennis:

Queen’s Club Final:
David Nalbandian (Argentina) was disqualified, rather dramatically, after angrily kicking an advertising board into, Andrew McDougall, a line judge’s leg. The official suffered a gashed and bloodied leg.

Nalbandian, had already clinched the first set 77 – 63 against Marin Cilic of Croatia, but exploded in frustration and anger after losing his serve to go 4-3 down in the second set.

During the disruption in play ATP supervisor Tom Barnes came onto the court to speak to umpire Fergus Murphy and Nalbandian. After their discussions it soon became clear that the Argentinean’s unsportsmanlike reaction had been punished with disqualification and Cilic was declared the champion.

Later Nalbandian did return to the court to apologise for his actions.
