Japanese tennis player Miyu Kato became emotional after being disqualified from the French Open doubles for accidentally hitting a ball girl with a ball. Kato may face consequences in terms of prize money and ranking points. Her mixed doubles partner, Tim Puetz, expressed sympathy for her and mentioned that everyone in the men’s locker room felt it was unfair to disqualify her.
