Tennis star Stefan Kozlov was left fuming when he scraped a BMW parked on the left service area of the court at the Delray Beach Open.
Kozlov was against Tommy Paul in the last-eight encounter when he was facing serve at 4-3.

He was forced back into the left hand side of the court on the serve and stretched out to return the ball.
However, he ended up scraping a sponsored BMW car parked on the court.
Kozlov immediately stopped and raised his racquet out of anger.
The camera zoomed in and showed he had scratched the luxury car following the return.
Kozlov then hit the car only a few points later.
The American may have been frustrated at the incident after going on to lose eight of the next nine games.
Tennis world reacts to bizarre car placement
The bizarre incident drew a reaction from a number of players and fans.
World No.2 Daniil Medvedev joked about the incident after seeing it.
The US Open champ said he hoped Kozlov didn't scratch another car, which would be because BMW is one of his sponsors.

Ivan Ljubicic also questioned the positioning of the car.
Position of the car is very questionable

I’d rephrased it: the BMW is parked so inside Sefan Koslov’s return area in Delray Beach that his racket swing just hit it. The car deservedly ended with a scrape on its paint. Take the d*mn car off the court!!!! It’s not a parking lot! https://t.co/iVam1H4ukq

Don’t see this too often… but who puts a CAR right where a righty hits a slice out wide serve????

Why on earth is there a car there? It deserves to be scratched 🤦🏻♀️

Who'd have thought that leaving a car on a tennis court while people are playing would impact the game?

That is a ridiculous place for that car to sit
