   Karolina Pliskova took to the umpire's chair with her racquet after a bad call

Former world No 1 Karolina Pliskova was so irate with an umpire in Rome that she smashed the umpire's chair with her racquet several times - instead of shaking hands - after a stunning loss to Maria Sakkari.

Despite TV replays proving Pliskova's shot was in, HawkEye and the challenge system isn't used on clay so the chair and line umpires rely on ball marks to settle disputes.

With both players locked at 5-5 in the decisive set, Pliskova smashed home a victor which was incorrectly called out much to the dismay of the Czech Republic star.

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

The decision prompted fury from fans online, some calling for the umpire to be removed from their position, whilst some claimed Pliskova went too far in her actions.

But the drama didn't end there - after the players shook hands, Pliskova then took a number of big swings with her racquet against the umpire's chair, taking a chunk out of its side.

For Sakkari it was the first top five win of her career and she will face Germany's 11th seed Angelique Kerber for a place in the quarter-finals.
