According to a recent announcement, Gael Monfils was disqualified from UTS Oslo after a playful argument caused a slight injury to the tournament supervisor.

French star Monfils makes headlines frequently for his daring moves. He is gaining attention, though, for rather different reasons. Monfils received a ban from the exhibition match known as the Ultimate Tennis Showdown. Lucas Pouille has taken Monfils’ position in the draw.

The UTS issued a statement: “Yesterday, a playful exchange in the locker room between Gael Monfils and tournament supervisor Stephane Apostolou resulted in a minor injury to the supervisor. UTS is 100% satisfied that there was no malice intended by Gael but because there was an injury sustained by an official, however minor, we felt there was no alternative but to disqualify Gael. Gael accepted the disqualification and he and the supervisor parted ways on friendly terms. See you next time, Gael.”
