Wimbledon - 'Worst player on the Tour!' - Jelena Ostapenko fumes with Ajla Tomljanovic over fake injury claim
Jelena Ostapenko branded Ajla Tomljanovic the 'worst player on the Tour' after she was accused of faking an injury during their Wimbledon match. Tomljanovic won the clash, but insisted Ostapenko was lying about an injury. Ostapenko confronted her opponent during their handshake. “Your behaviour is terrible, terrible. You have zero respect," she said.

“What? If I have an injury,” Ostapenko said, as she collected her things.
So bad, so bad. The worst player on the Tour.
Ostapenko was still fuming with her rival in the post-match press conference, branding her a liar and ‘very, very disrespectful’ and even suggested she would have swept Tomljanovic aside had she not been injured for much of the match.
"In my opinion it was very disrespectful from her side... if I had played at least 50 percent, I would have beaten her."
