Karolina Pliskova lashes out umpire's chair in shocking tantrum

Karolina Pliskova lashes out umpire's chair in shocking tantrum Karolina Pliskova lashes out umpire's chair in shocking tantrum

You rarely see the kind of fury Thiem displayed on the women's circuit however, where action tends to be a lot calmer.

World number six Pliskova had a number of run-ins with Mrozinska during the stormy match and now faces a heavy fine from the WTA.

Her most recent triumph came at the Stuttgart Open, where she defeated the American Coco Vandeweghe in straight sets 7-6, 6-4, but she didn't have the same kind of success earlier today in her Italian Open Round of 32 clash with Greek Maria Sakkari.

Replays showed the ball landed inside the sideline but umpire Marta Mrozinska refused to accept Pliskova's pleadings to overturn the call.

Pliskova smashed a hole in the umpire's chair in anger after a contentious line call late in her loss to Sakkari in the second round of the Italian Open.

Sakkari visibly winced as Pliskova vented her fury, taking several steps backwards before the Czech had stormed off, before shaking the umpire's hand.

In the third set with the sixth seeded Czech serving 6-3, 3-6, 5-5 (30/30) she had an overhead shot incorrectly ruled out and both the line judge and the umpire said they could not find the mark.

Pliskova's sister, Kristyna, went on to call for the umpire to be banned.
