Pliskova smashes umpire's chair in anger

Pliskova smashes umpire's chair in anger

But to her astonishment, umpire Marta Mrozinska and the line judge called the ball out.

After Pliskova embraced Sakkari at the net, she went to shake the chair umpire's hand before pulling it back and smashing her racket several times into the umpire's chair, clearly surprising Sakkari and leaving a massive crater in the chair.

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).

A hot-tempered argument made no progress in her bid to overturn the decision as the sixth seeded Czech went on to lose the game on unfortunate circumstances.

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.

However, she lost the game and Sakkari served out the match in the very next game to pull off a surprise victory 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.

For Sakkari it was the first top five win of her career and she will face the victor of the second-round match between 11th seed Angelique Kerber of Germany and Romania's Irina-Camelia Begu.
