Yeah, I get it. It just makes this tourney feel like a sham now.I don't like it either, but the rules are rules. You can't just knock it down to a point or game penalty because it wasn't intentional. Which based on how lightly he hit it, is probably more what he deserved.
Just absolutely terrible luck. But he needs to take responsibility too, the rules are in place because something like this could happen if you're not watching what you're doing. And they need to set a precedent that this won't be tolerated instead of letting a big name get away with it.
