‘You guys are all corrupt’ – Shapovalov hits out at umpire and Nadal

Shapovalov pulled off one of the biggest victories of his career over third seed Alexander Zverev in the fourth round to reach his third slam quarter-final against Rafael Nadal and first in Melbourne.

The 22-year-old was unable to find his best form in the opening set, though, and then showed his frustration by getting into a row with umpire Carlos Bernardes over the time Nadal was taking between points.

“You guys are all corrupt,” and he and Nadal then had words at the net,” the Canadian shouted, after Bernardes refused to give Nadal a time violation for delaying Shapovalov on his serve.

It did not distract Nadal, who moved into a two-set lead, but Shapovalov began to turn the tide in the third set and clinched it with a backhand winner after his opponent was given a time violation.
