Vika got point penalty for racket abuse.

At *5-5 15:40. She was going to change a stick while hearing she just sent the game away herself.

Flushing.

How long's the match? 3 hours? The other matches need to played so the umpire just gave them a help.

Re: Vika got point penalty for racket abuse.



Racquet and Ball abuse are such stupid offences, especially racquet like all you are doing is breaking YOUR racquet so why should the umpire care.

Was it not a second time violation?

Re: Vika got point penalty for racket abuse.

She was given a warning for ball abuse a point before, so when she smashed the racket, it was an automatic point penalty.

This little outburst did her at the end. The last game went by her as fast as a Venus Williams serve.

Re: Vika got point penalty for racket abuse.

She deserved it. Not to say that I didn't love it and think it was entertaining, but I really don't believe there is an argument that she shouldn't have gotten a penalty.

Yeah, just like a billionaire can smash chandeliers in his mansion if he feels like it. Or a student can rip apart his own book in front of the teacher if he feels like it. Right.
