American teenager Caty McNally was up against Dayana Yastremska in the opening round of the Cincinnati Open 2021. It was a close contest and the match was won by the Ukrainian player. The match was decided in two sets in which the winner had to be found out by playing a tiebreaker.

However, things got heated up towards the end of the match. As the match got over, Dayana Yastremska was seen walking past Caty McNally and kept her racquet. Ideally, she should’ve shaken her opponent’s hand and then moved towards her seat.

It was the teenaged American who went up to her and then did the needful by shaking her hand. Although, Caty turned around and was seen abusing the Ukrainian player and called her “A bi**h”. If one can see the clip, it is visible while reading her lips.

Reflecting on McNally’season so far, she began competing in the Australian Open but failed to make it past the second qualifying round. In the next Grand Slam event at Roland Garros, she lost in the first qualifying round. Following that, she lost in the second qualifying round at the Wimbledon Championships.

On the other hand, Dayana was suspended from the initial part of the season as she had tested positive for a banned substance. However, her suspension was lifted in June this season.
