MONTE CARLO, Principality of Monaco: American youngster Jared Donaldson squared up to French umpire Arnaud Gabas after losing his temper over a line call in bizarre scenes during a Monte Carlo Masters match on Monday. After Gabas got out of his chair to check a mark, Donaldson lost his cool when a serve from opponent Albert Ramos Vinolas was called in when he thought it was out. The 21-year-old Donaldson was adamant Gabas checked the wrong mark in the clay and squared up to the official while shouting at him insisting that what the umpire was pointing at “wasn’t a mark”. He then refused to play the next game until a supervisor was called to the court, claiming “I can call the supervisor whenever I want”. Donaldson later offered Gabas a sarcastic apology, saying: “I’m sorry I hurt your feelings, I apologise.”
