Stupor! Pliskova, sent home after leading 5-0

Czech tennis player Karolina Pliskova, 6th in the world, said goodbye again to her dream of winning her first Grand Slam title.

Pliskova was eliminated on Saturday in the third round of the Australian Open by her compatriot and friend Karolina Muchova, score 7-5, 7-5, after a match sprinkled with nerves and incredible upheavals.

Karolina Pliskova lost her job twice in a row at the start of the match and, although she caught up with Muchova at 4-4, she was defeated in the first set with 7-5. Karolina broke two missiles in a few minutes: the first, on the field, at 5-6, then on the way to the locker room, after losing the first set.

An official reported it to the referee and, as a result, the Czech woman received a second warning, so she started the second set with a penalty point. “It happened off the field, there I can do whatever I want,” Pliskova protested, according to Eurosport, before the arbitrator, who remained firm in his position: ‘not during the matchβ€ž.

In the second set, Pliskova broke away at 5-0, then stunned.

Muchova played seven consecutive games, ending the match with a double 7-5, after one hour and 54 minutes. Pliskova ended the match with 10 double faults and 40 unforced errors.

Karolina Pliskova is the player who managed, in 2019, an exceptional comeback from 2-5 in the decisive in a duel with Serena Williams.
