Lesia Tsurenko brought Donna Vekic an upset win at the Indian Wells tennis event and it's causing some controversy!
Apparently, after a 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 win over Donna Vekic led to some poor sportsmanship, a trend in Women's Tennis, because she refused to shake hands with the winner.
The Ukrainian Tsurenko, who is ranked 95 in the world approached the net and the Croatian Vekic didn't meet her there for a friendly "good match Old Sport" hand shake as they traditionally do in their sport.
Vekic beat Tsurenko last week at another tournament, which the duo shook hands,
After their match last week in Monterrey in which Lesia Tsurenko retired in set 2 to Donna Vekic (and shook hands), Vekic refuses to shake Tsurenko’s hand after the Tsurenko comeback win over Vekic at @BNPPARIBASOPEN just now.
