The ATP are investigating "allegations of racial prejudice" after Ryan Harrison's stormy first-round clash against fellow American Donald Young at the New York Open on Monday.

The men's tour said in a statement yesterday they would review video and audio from the match after the two players had a heated debate at a change of ends during the encounter won by world number 44 Harrison, with the umpire intervening to calm the situation.

Following his 6-3 7-6(4) defeat Young took to Twitter to offer his views on what had happened.

"I'm shocked and disappointed, Ryan Harrison, to hear you tell me how you really feel about me as a black tennis player in the middle of our NY match.

"I thought this was supposed to be an inclusive gentleman's sport," the 28-year-old world number 65 said.
