The coach of America’s young tennis sensation Coco Gauff, Brad Gilbert, has criticised Spain’s Paula Badosa for using unfair tactics during their Rome Open clash. The 20-year-old is often regarded as one of the most highly-rated players currently playing in women’s tennis in the singles category.
Gauff is currently taking part in the Rome Open where she booked her place in the quarterfinal after beating Spain’s Badosa in the round of 16 with a score of 5-7, 6-4, 6-1. After the match, Gauff’s coach Gilbert, in a post on his official account on the social media platform X — previously known as Twitter — criticised the Spaniard for using unfair means during the contest and believed that her catching three tosses in a row and was not penalised for time violation was ‘beyond ridiculous’
"you have heard me say this so many times, catching your on ball toss on serv is should not be allowed, how can u catch 3 tosses in arow and not at least get time violation is beyond ridiculous, also allowing 45 catches in a match and nothing in rules is mind boggling and such disadvantage to returner," he wrote. Gauff is now set to play Qinwen Zheng in the last-eight contest on Tuesday.
