Jelena Ostapenko crashed out in the quarter-finals of the WTA event in Stuttgart following a 5-7 7-5 6-4 defeat at the hands of Karolina Pliskova of Czech Republic on Friday. And, she didn’t have just herself to blame for her performance… but the chair umpire as well.

Former world number one Karolina Pliskova is facing a hefty punishment after smashing her racquet on the umpire’s chair in an irate outburst over an incorrect call in the second round of the WTA Italian Open.

With the game in the balance on Pliskova’s serve at 6-3, 3-6, 5-5 (30/30), an oversight from the umpire and line judge led the Czech to give up a costly break point that helped see Greece’s Maria Sakkari claim victory.

Both adjudicators couldn’t find the mark on an overhead shot that, on replays, appeared to obviously squeeze into the court.

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.

In reaching his decision , provincial court Judge Richard Hewson stressed that the woman's actions might not have been acceptable if the boy hadn't physically attacked her. "However, the law of assault does not make an exception requiring parents to tolerate assaults by children," Hewson's ruling reads. "A degree of force that would not be reasonable by way of correction, might be reasonable in self-defence.

Dani Alves ruled out of World Cup. World number one Simona Halep lost her first match at the Madrid Open in three years as sixth seed Karolina Pliskova continued her fine form.

After both women met each other at the net, Pliskova refused to shake the umpire’s hands before bashing a noticeable hole in the umpire’s chair as the crowd and Sakkari watched on in shock.

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