after injuring line judge
The Queen's Club final in London was halted abruptly when David Nalbandian of Argentina injured a line judge, handing the title to Marin Cilic of Croatia.
Nalbandian won the first set 7-6 (7-3) and was behind 3-4 in the second set when he kicked a barrier surrounding the line judge in anger. A piece of the barrier hit the line judge, causing bleeding on his left shin, and the chair umpire decided to end the match.
ATP rules state any violent action will result in an automatic default.
Nalbandian admitted making a mistake but added, "I didn't feel it had to end like that, especially in a final."
