Lorenzo Sonego was having a hard time and was concerned about not being able to win games. At the ATP250 Tour in Kitzbuehelhe lost the first-round match against Pablo Andujar in an exciting three-set match. After losing the first set, Sonego won the second set, giving his opponent some fierce competition. He is a wild and aggressive player who often gets out of hand and, in a fit of anger, does anything that upsets his confidence and pace.
Before the game it was 1-1 between Sonego and Pablo. Sonego is seeded 9th in the tournament and losing to a player ranked way below him didn’t go well for the Italian player. At Wimbledon that year he had a pretty serious argument with the net Rafael Nadal during his match and things turned ugly as he accused the Spaniard of distracting him. With this defeat he lost three games in a row.

Lorenzo Sonego’s action is completely unacceptable and stupid
There have been many instances where players couldn’t control their emotions during gameplay and resorted to ways to release their anger. Some throw racquets and some start arguing with the linesman or the chair umpire or the audience. This time it was Lorenzo Sonego who made the headlines with his stupidity that didn’t go down well with either the public or the spectators.
With the loss to Andujar, Sonego couldn’t control his emotions after losing a point in the match, got angry and did something that is unacceptable and appreciated at all. He was frustrated with the way the match was going and in the third tie-breaker set. In a fit of rage, he throws his bat and smashes it to the ground. After that hard impact, it rebounded back into the air. Being very angry, Sonego thoughtlessly kicked his racquet like it was a soccer ball, not a racquet. It might have been a momentary reaction, but luckily nothing serious happened. This annoyed everyone as it could have hurt the player and called it an act of stupidity.
