The Polish team of Mateusz Kowalczyk and Adam Majchrowicz were ahead against No. 2 seeds Remeez Junaid and Ken Skupski in the quarterfinals at the Napoli Challenger when things took a turn.
Serving up 6-4, 4-3, 30-40, Majchrowicz double faulted. In frustration over losing his serve and the break lead, he fired a forehand across the net, hitting Junaid in the head.
Seconds later, the Australian Junaid fell to the clay when he laid for next two minutes. Whether Junaid was really that injured or not, Kowalczyk and Majchronowicz were defaulted.
In doubles, players get hit all the time. But was this any worse?
