Diego Schwartzman, an Argentine tennis player, is currently competing in the Vienna Open 2021. He earned a spot in the pre-quarterfinals against French tennis star Gael Monfils after winning his opening-round match.
Despite the fact that Argentina won the match 7-6(5), 4-6, 6-2, there were numerous incidents during the play.
The equipment that replaces the line judges failed during the early stages of the match between Diego Schwartzman and Gael Monfils, resulting in a system failure.
The Argentine player’s momentum was delayed as a result of this. However, an incident involving Diego and Gael’s coach, Gunter Bresnik, drew notice.
Schwartzman lost his temper when he saw the Frenchman’s coach was trying to nudge him by staring him down. The 29-year-old player was not pleased with this.
“He is so stupid. He doesn’t stop looking at me,” he said.

He also went ahead and confronted him.
“I have confidence with Bresnik so I asked him why he is clapping me and saying ‘bravo’ to my face. I don’t want a discussion.”
