Su-Wei Hsieh was involved in a thrilling second round contest against Andrea Petkovic at the French Open on Thursday.

Despite, during the fag end of the match, she managed to put smiles on spectators’ faces by pretending to answer a fan’s phone call placed on the sideboard.

And going by fans’ Twitter reactions, they did love the fun moment. “Adorable. She needs to open the Hsieh Happy Tennis Academy,” one person opined.

“One of the most fun players to watch in all of tennis!” another one added.

The lighter moment didn’t help her seize the momentum as she was handed a 4-6 6-3 8-6 defeat at the hands of Petkovic, who is next slated to meet Ashleigh Barty.

A similar incident had happened back in 2011, when Alize Cornet’s phone call briefly interrupted her match against Caroline Wozniacki.
