Yeah honestly not sure TBH but it seems a fairly obvious judgment call. Again, there's a big difference between targeting an opponent who is standing in the court and targeting an opponent who's standing in the middle of the wrong service box.

she didn't call her a bitch in French, she said "putain", which means whore, yes, but is not used in that sense: in fact it's a common bad word in France, the equivalent of "fuck" as an exclamation (not as a verb, insult, etc.). Examples:
Putain ! J’en ai marre ! = Fuck! I’m sick of this!
Putain! Nous avons gagné! = Well, fuck! We won!

I think hitting cornet is better than advancing and losing the next round.

I hear "pute" too, although Ostapenko said "Sorry" right after and Cornut quickly said "it's okay" and then seemed to even be laughing a little.

No, she CLEARLY said "la pute". I don't blame her though.

Re: Ostapenko Hits Cornet With A Serve, Wins The Point!

How do we know she didn't apologize? The camera cuts to Martic and Ostapenko actually looks like she might be apologizing shortly before it cuts to the Croatian.

Entirely graceless though to accept the point.

For one thing if she'd actually said sorry you'd hear it. In the other video she clearly says "sorry" and Cornut says "it's okay." It looked like she may have raised her hand (like Kudermetova did) in the same non-apology way someone does for a net cord, but that's it, and you can see her walking over to high-five Kudermetova when the camera cuts and then them laughing.

Of course she would accept the point though . That's like saying Bertens should have given Halep the point in the Madrid final, or someone should decline a point if their opponent accidentally touches the net on a putaway.

I always thought this rule was in place for those returning players who like to stand close to the service line and try to intimidate the server. Thus, if you happen to get hit while trying to affect my service then I win the point.

Glad she ended up losing.
Agree with you. She should have apologized.
