A furious Karolina Pliskova did something shocking during her Rome Masters match

A furious Karolina Pliskova did something shocking during her Rome Masters match”

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

But the drama didn't end there - after the players shook hands, Pliskova then took a number of big swings with her racquet against the umpire's chair, taking a chunk out of its side.

Former world No. 1 Karolina Pliskova blew up at the Italian Open, smashing her racket several times on the umpire chair in frustration after a blown call ultimately decided her fate in the second round.

However, the line-judge deemed the ball to be out, and this decision was not over-ruled by umpire Marta Mrozinska.

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.

She furiously repeatedly struck the umpire's chair with her racket.

Pliskova's error on the ensuing rally allowed Sakkari to serve for the match and the 22-year-old converted - which is when the Czech really let loose. 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.
