Alexandra Stevenson, a former tennis pro, raised eyebrows over Karolina Pliskova’s reaction to Coco Gauff’s dispute with an umpire during the Dubai Tennis Championships. Stevenson expressed surprise, questioning why Pliskova didn’t show support when Gauff was facing an unjust call.

“What the heck was Karolina Pliskova thinking?” Stevenson exclaimed, highlighting the absence of mutual support that was lacking at the moment. She pointed out the fact that despite any personal differences, players should unite against unfair rulings. “Even if you don’t like your opponent, if you’re seeing this happening with an umpire, you got to insert yourself and try to help,” she asserted.

Stevenson highlighted the need to show honorable conduct, particularly pointing out that Pliskova could have intervened to calm the situation. As the former tennis pro highlighted this unique perspective, it is sure that the fans will be looking at the whole scenario from a completely different angle.
