The Czech was locked at a set all, 5-5, and 40-40 in a tense match against the world number 42 in Rome.

The scene sparked when both the linesperson and umpire couldn't spot Pliskova's ball mark in the clay with the deciding set tied at 5-5.

At 5-5 in the third, Pliskova got engaged in a lengthy argument after she had an overhead smash called out.

However, the line-judge deemed the ball to be out, and this decision was not over-ruled by umpire Marta Mrozinska.

The No. 6 seed from the Czech Republic was seen arguing with the umpire on several occasions during the match, which she lost 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 in the second round of the Italian Open, USA Today reported.

World number six Pliskova had a number of run-ins with Mrozinska during the stormy match and now faces a heavy fine from the WTA.

Sports fans also took to social media to point out that several calls made by the umpire were wrong.

Afterwards, she briefly congratulated her opponent before withdrawing her outstretched hand to the umpire and smashing the chair.

It was the first time Sakkari had beaten a top-five player in her career.
