Karolina Pliskova wasn’t the first, nor will she be the last, player to completely lose her temper.

On Wednesday in Rome, the former No. 1 became so angry that she bashed her racket into the umpire chair just after a 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 loss to Maria Sakkari.

Former world number one Karolina Pliskova attacked the umpire’s chair with her racquet after being on the receiving end of a controversial call during her match at the Italian Open against Greece’s Maria Sakkari.

Let’s just say Pliskova didn’t hold back. When all was said and done, she put a hole right through the chair. And here we thought she had a powerful serve.

Do you think Pliskova’s opponent was just a little scared?

Tennis in some respects is very much like life itself. Serenity now, fury later.
