French tennis player Gael Monfils commented on his disqualification from the UTS tournament in Oslo (Norway). On Saturday, February 10, the athlete was suspended from the competition due to the fact that he accidentally injured tournament supervisor Stefan Apostol.
“I want to tell everyone what happened at the UTS tournament in Oslo. As stated in the message received directly from the organizers, there was no malice or negativity on my part. No offense, no violence.
However, during our banter in the locker room, Stefan unfortunately got injured. It was never my intention to hurt or harm him, and luckily Stefan knows that. People who know me know that this is not in my nature.
Stefan and I shook hands and moved on.
The disqualification makes it seem like there was some kind of altercation or problem behind the scenes, but this is not the case. An accident, nothing more,” the tennis player wrote on social networks.
