Angry Pliskova damages umpire's chair at Italian Open

Angry Pliskova damages umpire's chair at Italian Open

We've already had some on-court fury today at the Rome Masters, when Dominic Thiem destroyed his racquet after hitting a shot too long against Fabio Fognini.

The world number six had a number of run-ins with Mrozinska during the heated encounter and now faces a heavy fine from the WTA.

Incredibly, the ball was called out and upon protestations from Pliskova, the linesman and the umpire couldn't find her ball's mark in the clay surface - so, the call stood.

What sanctions the women's tennis body will impose on Pliskova for her actions is not yet known. The ball, which was clearly in, was ruled out.

If Pliskova didn't show her distain to her opponent, she certainly did to Mrozinska, as she swung her racket three times, causing considerable damage to the umpire's chair.

Pliskova, the No 6 seed from the Czech Republic, lost 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 in the second round of the Italian Open on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time).

Pliskova's twin sister Kristyna, who is also a professional player, threw her support behind her sibling by calling out the horrendous umpire decision.

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