Karolina Pliskova Hits Umpire's Chair With Racket After Loss

Karolina Pliskova Hits Umpire's Chair With Racket After Loss

Former world No 1 Karolina Pliskova unleashed on the umpire's chair after her controversial defeat to Greece's Maria Sakkari at the Italian Open on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time).

At 5-5 in the match-deciding set, Pliskova overhead smashed a slow-dropping ball for what she assumed was a winning point.

Pliskova was served at 30-all with the final set deadlocked at 5-5 and went on to lose the match very much based on that decision.

Pliskova's twin sister Kristyna took to Twitter to defend her, claiming Mrozinska as the "worst she has ever seen" and hoped that she would "never referee" a match involving herself or her sister. She then hit her racquet against the umpire's chair "several times", USA Today reports, leaving a gaping hole.

No fine has been announced, and messages left with the Women's Tennis Association were not immediately returned.

On social media some tennis fans think Pliskova should be suspended while others say that the umpire and line judge should face action.

She argued with the umpire on several occasions during the match about points that went out of her favour and calls that were obviously wrong when shown on replay.

"Nothing justifies destroying the umpire's chair".
