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.

Reilly Opelka defeated Australian John Millman in the semi-final to set up a clash with British star Cameron Norrie for the trophy.
