Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina is known to possess an authoritative service. On Wednesday though, it was the net – and not her opponent – that was at the received end of it.

During her quarter-final clash against Elise Mertens of Belgium at the Australian Open, Svitolina broke the net camera with a powerful service that crashed straight on to it.

As can be seen in the video below, the camera lost about half its visibility even as there was no disruption in play.

Svitolina went on to lose the first match of her 2018 season, going down 4-6 0-6 in just 73 minutes.

As for Mertens, she moves on to the semi-finals, where she will face either Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark or Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro for a place in the final.
