So it was an accident :shrug:
Yep, it was an accident. He threw his racquet into the net, but it bounced off the cord, went over the net and hit Ashley in the leg. No injury at all, but if you hit a person under any circumstances, you have to be defaulted. Two players defaulted in one tournament, weird.

There are some really good photos from this tournament at www.tennis.info (as always, Jeff and Manuela take excellent pictures).

I think it's more of a case of umpires letting the players get away with too much at the ATP tour level. Such a double standard. :rolleyes:
Have you ever heard of Daniel Koellerer?

So no, I don't think there are different standards comparing ATP to challenger level. It just depends on who is umpiring the match, not on which level the match is being played at.
