After a contentious judgement in her French Open semifinal loss to Iga Swiatek on Thursday night, Coco Gauff became emotional and emphasised the necessity for tennis to employ a Video Review (VR) system.
The US Open champion in September, the third-seeded American, was called ‘out’ when she failed to return on Swiatek’s serve when leading 2-1 in the second set. However, chair umpire Aurlie Tourte overturned the call, rejecting her claim that her shot was harmed during the play.

“I hit it after he called. “I’m 100 percent certain,” yelled Gauff. “I stop reacting if he calls it before I strike it. I didn’t even complete my follow-up.
Tourte maintained that Gauff’s shot was unaffected by the call.
“You’re incorrect,” Gauff urged. It is the second instance that has occurred. You ought to be embarrassed. This is a Grand Slam semifinal; be aware of the rules.

The 20-year-old dried his tears at the baseline and came back to break Swiatek, but he was unable to prevent the top seed from winning 6-2 6-4.
“I believe it was simply too much. I’m obviously losing this match,” Gauff said to the press.

“Every point counts when playing against her—against anybody, but particularly against her. I believe it was just one of those times, but I managed to move past it. That game was mine.

“So I usually don’t get too frustrated with decisions like that, but I think it was just a combination of everything going on in the moment.”
Gauff is hardly the first athlete to suggest that umpires should use technology, as Briton After Cameron Norrie avoided a double bounce in his second-round victory over Lucas Pouille at Roland Garros last year, he stated that video replays ought to be used.
