German tennis player Tamara Korpatsch looked livid with her doubles partner Harmony Tan as the latter pulled out of their match against No. 15 seeds Raluca Olaru and Nadiia Kichenok an hour before the game. Korpatsch shared a post expressing her disappointment after missing out on a chance to play the doubles match.

The German player said that if a player is broken after a 3-hour match, they can’t play professional (tennis). Notably, Harmony Tan played Serena Williams late into the night on Tuesday, securing a three-hour, 11-minute victory over the 23-time Grand Slam champion on Centre Court that evidently left her injured.

Korpatsch looked really frustrated and angry at this last-moment withdrawal from Tan. The German shared a story as well as a post on the social media platform Instagram. She called Tan’s actions unfair and said she is really disappointed. “She can’t run cause she played a 3-hour match yesterday,” Korpatsch posted on an Instagram story. “Sorry, but I’ve played 6:33h in one day and played a singles match the next day.”

“[She] let me wait here 1 hour before the match start,” she continued on an Instagram post. “I’m very sad, disappointed and also very angry that I can’t play my 1st Doubles Grand Slam. And It’s really not fair for me. I didn’t deserve that. She asked me before the tournament if we wanna play doubles and I said yes, I didn’t ask her, she asked me!

“If you’re broken after a 3h Match the day before, you can’t play professional,” she concluded. “That’s my opinion.”

Tan, who indeed played a deeply physical match against Williams, is yet to comment on Korpatsch’s online outburst.

After defeating Williams in her first-round match, the 24-year-old Frenchwoman is preparing to face No. 32 seed Sara Sorribes Tormo for a spot in the singles third round. Meanwhile, Korpatsch lost her first-round singles match against Heather Watson on Monday
