The commentator said some rude words at Jelena Ostapenko’s game against Kateryna Baindi.
The commentator, unfortunately, made some unprofessional remarks which were directed at Ostapenko and her playing style. The incident has been met with widespread criticism from tennis fans around the world.
Unfortunately, the commentator chose to use words that are considered rude and inappropriate. This resulted in a heated exchange between Ostapenko and the Australian Open TV commentators.
