In the match against Italian Giulia Gato Monticone in Bogota, Australian tennis player Astra Sharma was seriously injured.
In the third set the result was 1:1, Sharma scored 0:30 on the opponent’s serve and won the next point. The referee went to check if the ball was in the car, confused along the way and forgot the result. Instead of scoring 0-40, he scored 30-15 for the Italian.
The TV score was correct, but the referee’s score was wrong, so Sharma, who won the next third, lost the game instead of winning. Sharma realized that the match was awarded to the opponent, so she protested in vain, and even Gatto-Monticone did not show fair play because she didn’t want to admit that she shouldn’t be 2:1. Lead.
The Australian called the supervisor and was shocked by the news she heard.
“I was told that I should learn a lesson from it and focus more on the results than tennis in the future.” Sharma said that he eventually lost the game and therefore ran out of $1,000 and 30 points.
