Boos followed two-time French Open champion Maria Sharapova as she walked off the court at the French Open.
Sharapova defeated Kaia Kanepi 6-2, 6-4. But the fans were upset when she refused to give a post-match interview for fans inside the French Open's main court.
Even after an announcement that Sharapova's "voice is broken" and she could be seen coughing as she walked off the court, fans were quick and vehement in their show of disapproval.
But the reaction did not miff the champ. "I totally understand that, you know, everyone usually does post-(match) interview and answers a few questions to the crowd," Sharapova told reporters after the match. "It's absolutely normal. I don't – I'm not making any excuses – but I've got to do what I have to do."
