Wow, tennis player Danielle Collins forgets her score in her match and celebrates before her victory royale. “I would like to sink into the ground,” she says.
Melbourne – American tennis player Danielle Collins reacted with humor to her early victory celebration in the second round of the Australian Open. “I’m not very good with the score, sometimes I forget. I think I have to work on it a bit,” Collins, who was seeded No.13, said afterwards with a laugh: “It was a bit embarrassing. I would like to sink into the ground.”
In yesterday’s match against the Czech Karolina Muchova, Collins already felt like a winner after winning the point to make it 7-3 in the third set tie-break. She tossed the bat away from her and threw her arms in the air. As she made her way to the net to shake her opponent’s hand, Collins noticed that she had stopped at the baseline.
At that moment, he should have remembered that in Grand Slam tournaments in the deciding set, you need not seven, but ten of your own points to win.
The Germans are also celebrating too early
“I’ve never had a tie-break in the third set of a Grand Slam,” the 29-year-old explained, “so I thought the match was over.” She was able to laugh at her little misstep because she actually said that a little later she allowed herself to celebrate the final score of 6:7 (1:7), 6:2, 7:6 (10:6). .
The German player Laura Siegemund had a similar experience in Melbourne, celebrating her first round victory against Italian Lucia Bronzetti too early with a score of 5:3 in the third set.
“I was so focused on my service game that I didn’t think about the score at all,” the 34-year-old explained later, “and when the ball went flying, I thought for a brief moment: the match is over.” .” dpa
