Corentin Moutet and Adrian Andreev came to blows following their round of 16 match at the Orleans Challenger in France.
Top seed Moutet went down 6-2, 6-7, 6-7 to Andreev, ranked 247 in the world.
When the players met at the net after the match, Andreev seemed to shove Moutet after a cursory handshake.
Wow 😯 this should be serious 🧐 fines and suspension https://t.co/u0HtH2lMW3

The players exchanged a few heated words before they got into a physical altercation.
The chair umpire had to step in to make sure things get uglier from there on.
The ATP has not yet responded to the incidence.
