Jule was losing and claimed that it was too dark to play (it was somewhat dark, i dunno). She argued with umpire for several times about it and even took a MTO but it made no difference and she lost. Arantxa, as far as I remember, didn't participate in any of those discussions.
Apparently, when Jule was coming to the net she couldn't see Arantxa because of the darkness.
I was ready to capture the video for a gif and haven't been mistaken with my expectations about the handshake. So the gif was born.
"Passion. Confidence. Intelligence. Open-mindedness. Humility.
These are the sexiest qualities one can strive to possess. "
I think Julia had beef with the Ump during that match, and going first to the Ump to shake hands was a sarcastic move, directed at the Ump, not at Rus.
