Former World No. 6 Gaël Monfils faced disqualification from the Oslo leg of the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS) due to a code of conduct violation stemming from his interaction with the tournament supervisor. This unexpected turn of events has left fans puzzled.

Participating in Patrick Mouratoglou’s distinctive exhibition event for the fourth time, Monfils began his campaign in Oslo with a disappointing defeat against World No. 11 Alex de Minaur, losing 12-15, 8-17, 9-16 in his opening match on Thursday (February 9).

During the match, the 37-year-old attempted to use a “three-pointer card” before a crucial point against his opponent. However, Monfils’ request for the card was deemed untimely by the umpire, leading to a dispute between the player and the official. Despite the disagreement, the match proceeded.

Subsequently, Gaël Monfils was disqualified from the Ultimate Tennis Showdown in Oslo following his defeat, with fellow Frenchman Lucas Pouille stepping in as his replacement. This decision has sparked confusion within the tennis community on social media.

One fan found amusement in Monfils’ disqualification from what they described as the “most unserious tennis event known to humankind.”

“No cuz how are they disqualifying a player in the most unserious tennis event that is known to human kind ijbol,” the fan remarked. Another echoed this sentiment, considering the exhibition tournament’s unconventional format and suggesting that it hardly adheres to a strict code of conduct.

“It’s so bizarre. UTS barely has a code of conduct,” the fan commented.
