Karolina Pliskova SMASHES umpire's chair and sister launches scathing attack on Twitter

Karolina Pliskova Italian Open

Czech tennis player Karolina Pliskova was incensed with a horrendous call during her second-round match with Maria Sakkari at the Italian Open on Wednesday.

The usually stoic Czech disagreed with chair umpire Marta Mrozinska over a call when she put away an easy overhead at 5-5, deuce, in the third set. The ball, which was clearly in, was ruled out.

It appears in this case the head umpire wasn't able to find Pliskova's mark, and the out call stood - giving Sakkari a break point.

US Open champion Sloane Stephens held off a comeback from Estonian qualifier Kaia Kanepi in a 6-0 5-7 6-4 victory; seventh-seeded Caroline Garcia defeated Timea Babos 6-3 6-4 and 14th-seeded Daria Kasatkina eliminated American qualifier Danielle Collins 6-2 6-3.

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.

After the players shook hands, Pliskova then took three massive swings with her racquet against the umpire's chair, gouging out a large hole in its side. She moves into the third round, where she will face the victor of the second-round match between No.11 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany and Romania's Irina-Camelia Begu.
