An accident occurred at the ATP Perugia Challenger which seriously endangered the safety of the people present on the Central Court. Renzo Olivo became the protagonist of this crazy story.
The Argentine tennis player was unable to keep his nerve after the loss he suffered in the round of 16 against Timofey Skatov and he threw the ball towards the stands of the court. Unfortunately for him and the other people, Olivo hit one of the glass panes which gave way and it completely shattered.
No one was injured, but the consequences for Olivo’s gesture could be very serious. In his career Renzo Olivo has won 5 Futures tournaments, he lost 7 finals, of which 5 in the ATP Challenger events. In the Grand Slams, his best results of him was the second round at the Australian Open 2016 and the second round at the Roland Garros 2017.
Here are the images of what happened.
