Denis Shapovalov just went scorched earth at the Italian Open — the Canadian tennis star told fans in the stands to “shut the f*** up” in a fit of rage … and the moment was captured on video.
The incident went down during Shapovalov’s match against Lorenzo Sonego in the tourney’s round of 64 … when Denis got into an argument with the umpire on the sideline.
Denis was upset over a point penalty he received after crossing the net to show the ump a mark on the court … and when he approached the guy on the sideline, fans in attendance at the Grand Stand Arena let him hear it with a loud chorus of boos.
In the short clip, Shapovalov turns to the crowd and yells, “Shut the f*** up,” before going back to plead his case in front of the supervisor.
