The Wuhan Open semi-final encounter between Italy’s Roberta Vinci and America’s Venus Williams didn’t wind up before staging some drama in the middle. Not only did the duo play out of their skin to put up an enthralling contest, but also managed to serve up some verbal volley towards the fag end of the match.

It happened so during the third-set tie-break, when Vinci was serving at 4-6 down. Her first serve ended in fault. While flinging her second serve, she was stopped by Venus, who was visibly unprepared to receive.

Unhappy with this, Vinci uttered “what are you doing?” In response, Venus pointed out that the ball boy was still on the move. Still unconvinced, Vinci remarked “Do you want a tea or a coffee, maybe?”

Venus, however, had the last laugh as she rallied to pull off the tie-breaker and the match in a grueling encounter that lasted two hours and 43 minutes.
