Here a shot by the Japanese player hit the ball girl. She was oblivious to the fact that the ball was coming towards her. After being hit by the ball, she started moaning in pain and started crying bitterly on the court itself. Here the Japanese and Indonesian player apologized to the ball girl. In this case the umpire warned Kato, but the match trailing Czech Bouzkova and Spaniard Sorribes Tormo called the referee to Court 14 and informed about the ball girl’s injury.
After a long discussion, the referee disqualified Kato and his partner. Everyone was surprised by this. Usually, in such cases only a warning is given. The disqualification decision was a bit surprising if the shot was not an intentional one. On the other hand, Buzkova of the opposition team said – it is a bad situation for everyone. But this decision has been taken by the rules. This is very unfortunate. It was a referee’s decision. Bujkova argued that she did not see the ball hit the ball girl, but she was crying for 15 minutes.
