According to L’Equipe, Corentin Moutet has been ousted from the French Tennis Federation – and had his funding removed – because of his numerous antics on the ATP circuit. In particular, the Frenchman almost came to blows with Adrian Andreev during the Orleans Challenger tournament at the end of September.

The FFT confirmed to L’Equipe: “Corentin’s behaviour on court does not correspond to the values that the FFT wishes to transmit. We cannot support this type of behaviour. Number five in the French ATP rankings, Corentin Moutet will no longer be able to count on financial support from the Federation.”

Ironically, the 23-year-old was the last Frenchman standing at the Rolex Paris Masters after Gilles Simon lost the final match of his career. And Moutet took aim at the FFT on Twitter with a tweet worthy of the greatest social network trolls.

“Thank you for your support,” tweeted the world No 64, quoting a tweet made by the FFT early on Thursday, after his victory over Cameron Norrie in the second round of the Rolex Paris Masters at 3.05am. Great Moutet!
