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.

In what turned out to be the last game of the two-hour 55-minute match, a second service from Pliskova was called out. The decision, however, was overruled and the point was given to the Czech.

This didn’t go down well with Ostapenko. “Are you crazy, or what?” she snapped, placing her finger on the head (see the video below).

Pliskova later went on to win the game, set, match to set up a semi-final date with Anett Kontaveit of Estonia.

There was, however, no love lost between the two players.
