French Open 2023 is quickly becoming one of the most controversial events of 2023. From athletes skipping their presser to being aggressive during the game, the series of negative limelight seems to be endless. Another instance that added up to the pile is a duo being disqualified from doubles on Sunday as a ball accidentally hit a ball girl.

Japanese player Miyu Kato and Indonesian partner Aldila Sutjiadi were disqualified from the French Open 2023 because Miyu hit a ball girl in a freak accident. This caused the ball girl to start crying, and a decision was made, obviously not in their favor. But what caused dismay was the other doubles duo’s reaction. Miyu and Aldila were playing against Marie Bouzkova and Sara Sorribes who, instead of defending Miyu’s accidental hit, asked the umpire to focus on the ball girl crying. This resulted in their disqualification.

But the story does not end here. After Miyu Kato took to social media to apologize for her accidental hit, Alize Cornet, the French tennis star, favored her and called out Marie’s and Sara’s obnoxious actions.

Immediately after the incident, Miyu apologized to the ball girl immediately on the court. Even though the umpire was willing to let go of the incident as it was unintentional. The other doubles duo, Marie and Sara, kept asking the umpire to focus on the ball girl, who was crying. This led to the disqualification of the Japanese-Indonesia duo.
