The French tennis umpire who was struck with a ball hit by Canada’s Denis Shapovalov during a Davis Cup tie with Great Britain has admitted he was lucky not to have been blinded by the incident.
Arnaud Gabas spent two hours in Ottawa General Hospital after the event but, fortunately, did not suffer damage to his eyes.
Canada’s Denis Shapovalov DQ’d from the Davis Cup and fined £5,600 for hitting the umpire.

WATCH: A tennis player gets mad and hits the umpire in the face with a tennis ball
Shapovalov was so angry that he smashed the tennis ball as hard as he could — unfortunately chair umpire Arnaud Gabas’ face got in the way.
When things go south, generally the anger is taken out on the racket, a towel or something inanimate — generally not the chair umpire’s face.
Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov found a new way to express his frustration during Canada’s Davis Cup first-round match against Great Britain.
The outburst resulted in a default, and Great Britain moved on to face France in the quarterfinals.
Hopefully the 2016 Wimbledon junior champion can put this nastiness behind him and go on to a prolific career.

It also happened to a Davis Cup umpire at TD Place in Ottawa.
The Brits advance to the Davis Cup World Group quarter-final while Canada faces the circuitous route of World Group playoffs in September.
Hopefully the next time Mr. Shapovalov strikes a tennis ball toward the stands, it will be a playful lob to the crowd, celebrating a well-earned victory.
The end result was that Canada dropped the deciding singles match to Kyle Edmund (6-3, 6-4, 2-1) to deliver Great Britain a 3-2 win in this Davis Cup tie.
As quickly as the ball reached the umpire, Shapovalov’s right hand came to his own mouth to signal his mortification and disbelief over what just happened.
