"You can't give me a code violation for that," a perplexed Alize Cornet said to the umpire while gesticulating in anger after receiving a second time violation and losing her first serve against Tamara Zidansek in the third round of the Australian Open. "What is your problem with me? Listen to me: we don't even have time to get a towel! They are over there, and that is very far."
'What's your problem with me?' - Cornet gets in heated argument with umpire
Alize Cornet could not contain her fury after she received a second time violation from the umpire and lost her first serve at the Australian Open.
The French star, who was clearly struggling to see the court with the sun blazing down on Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne, took too long for the shot clock at the start of her service game during the second set of her third-round match against Tamara Zidansek.
It came at a crucial moment in the match at 4-4 with Zidansek having claimed the opening set, and Cornet was absolutely livid that she was deducted a serve in the searing heat.
