David Nalbandian was sensationally disqualified from the Queen’s final on Sunday afternoon after the Argentine kicked an advertising board in a fit of rage and ended up injuring a line judge.

Nalbandian was a break down in the second set against Marin Cilic when he lost his temper and kicked the board which flew in the direction of a line judge, cutting his shin in the process.

The player clearly felt aggrieved by the umpire’s decision, especially as it was a hotly-contested final where Cilic was a break up in the second set and it appeared as though the match was going to go into a deciding set.

Nalbandian took the opportunity to apologise to the spectators during the post-match interview with Sue Barker of the BBC although he was less remorseful when it came to the ATP’s decision to end the final.

The advertising board was directly in front of the line judge’s legs and it did appear to be the right decision considering that the man was clearly badly injured on the shin by the player’s furious kick.
