The unprofessional and unsportsmanlike move of the 25-year-old American Tommy Paul stunned tennis fans around the world.

An embarrassing scene was seen after the match of "The Laver Cup” in London in between Novak Djokovic (Serbia) from the "Team of Europe" and Frances Tiafoe (USA) from the "World Team".

The American tennis player Tommy Paul after Djokovic's convincing 2:0 victory, he refused to shake hands with the Serbian ace.

Djokovic defeated Tiafoe 6:1 and 6:3 and after saying goodbye to his rival at the net, he approached the "World Team" bench to say goodbye to the rest of the tennis players, i.e. the opponents.

He extended his hand to World Team coach John McEnroe, then walked to the others. The unsportsmanlike move of Tommy Paul followed, instead of being an example of a professional athlete, he did not shake hands with the Serbian, but turned his head to the other side.
