Maybe Cornet was intimidating Penko by standing within 5 metres of the service box.

I wish more players did that. The doubles game would become a bit more watchable.

That is not ok. But worse than Penko doing it, is the rules allowing it and rewarding her the point. Makes zero sense. Just make a target of your opponent then

Ostapenko is trash for not even apologizing.
Glad she lost

Never forget Lisicki actually standing inside the service box that the opponent Erakovic was serving in during the 2011 Wimbledon doubles semifinal. Erakovic partner Tanasugarn was not amused.

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

I was there courtside when it happened
Cornet had a hissy fit
Only saw last 2 games or so but that point was worth it

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

I love how Kudermetova does a little fist pump afterwards..

I really hope there is a singles match between Ostapenko and Cornet soon.. The potential drama! Could make the Ostapenko Broady fiasco look like a weather report in comparison.

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

For some reason I found Cornet's protest funny but appropriate.
"She served on me! It's a way to win a point"?

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

People are being a bit unfair to Ostapenko as always. The camera cutted and she probably apologized with a hand signal. She said sorry when she hit Cornet at first. It wasn't intentional and it didn't hurt probably. Accidents happen, what can we do? But as always some of the usual suspects are quickly to trash her here.

Anyway, even out of the top 50 Aljona still can get a lot of posts on threads related to her. Even in a doubles match that no one cares. Now, that's what I call being relevant.

Just when I was feeling a bit annoyed with Oysterpancake she finds a way to redeem herself.


I think all Cornet's opponents should adopt this tactic in upcoming matches. I'm sure she would see the funny side.

-Cornet [] protests

-Umpire []

Where's the poster that makes the comics? This one writes itself.
