Re: Handshake Drama: Alycia Parks v Katherine Sebov ITF 60K Las Vegas

I‘d love to know what experienced drama queens like Ostapenko, Putintseva, Kyrgios and Tsitsipas think about this..

She lost her cool because Sebov squeezed her hand?
I can imagine it could be experienced as belittling and very disrespectful to say the least. You can see the umpire reacting immediately, even before Parks really did. Disappointing from Sebov.

The way her coach flies into the situation at 0:27 is pretty epic

It was a prettyquick handshake, so the squeezing must have been somewhere else. Maybe the stomachearea? Who knows.
The whole situation is a fail in every department, though.

1 girl squeezes the other, the other gets violent herself and the coach/father? immediately calls it a racist incident.

Youp, that's the world we live in.

Quite surprised by this, have seen Sebov play many times and have never seen any type of antic from her on court - even the scream at the end caught me by surprise. They played just a few weeks ago as well, wonder if there was some ongoing drama there? Either way, I’m sure there is plenty more to this than what we get out of the clip but not acceptable from either player in my opinion.
