Kyle Edmund had a heated debate with the chair umpire in his Madrid Open quarter-final after a spectator called out during Denis Shapovalov's serve.
With Shapovalov one set up and serving at 5-5, 30-30 in the second, a noise from the crowd caused Edmund to stop as his opponent served, but despite the Briton's protests, the point was given as an ace.
"Kyle, it's not the Davis Cup, I talked to the crowd but I can't do anything," the umpire told Edmund, who then saved a match point in the following game to take it to a tie-break.
Edmund managed to level the tie at one-set all, but the Canadian regained his composure in the decider to claim a 7-5 6-7 (6-8) 6-4 victory.
After the match, Shapovalov told Sky Sports he felt "awful" about the incident, though conceded the decision was out of his control.
