Things turned nasty between Donald Young and Ryan Harrison during their New York Open match and then it continued on Twitter.

Harrison beat fellow American Young 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) in a stormy encounter on Monday evening and they were involved in several verbal confrontations during the match.

Although no one is quite sure what was said by the two during the match, below is court-side footage of one incident.

During the post-match interview, Harrison played down the altercation.

However, Young took to Twitter to express his outrage and accused his compatriot of making a racist slur.

Someone then asked for more information about the incident and Young’s girlfriend then tweeted the following.

Harrison, though, immediately hit back, saying the comments are “absolutely untrue”.
