Ostapenko again voices displeasure at electronic line calling at Australian Open: "I cannot do anything about it"

Jelena Ostapenko was not happy with the electronic line calling at the Australian Open claiming that it made many mistakes during her match with Rybakina.

Rybakina quite easily defeated Ostapenko in this match 6-2 6-4 leaving the Latvian very upset. Speaking after the match, Ostapenko once again raised the electronic line calling as an issue claiming that it missed calls all the time. She also claimed that it was pretty evident, by a couple of centimetres:

"I'm not really happy with the system they are using. But couple times it was really, like, not even by couple of centimetres. It was much more than that. But I cannot do anything about it, because it is the way as it is."

She added:

"But I feel like some lines, sometimes the system is not, how you say, not ignoring, but sometimes the calls are -- first of all, they are really late sometimes. You already hit the ball, and then you hear "Out," which is normally not the way it is with the line umpires. And second of all, some balls were quite, how you say, not a little out. They were a bit out and they were not called."
