Serena Williams Orders Espresso In the Middle of a Match (Video)
American Tennis Player Christina McHale Pukes on Court at Australian Open, Still Wins Match (Video)
Dear America: forget Serena Williams and Sloane Stephens. No disrespect to them, but your new favorite female tennis player is Christina McHale, 22, of Engelwood Cliffs, New Jersey.
Christina is only ranked 54th in the world right now, so she’s probably not going to win the 2015 Australian Open. However, Christina McHale did something totally badass during her opening round match against Stephanie Fortz of France on Monday.
With the score tied 4-4 in the third and decisive set, Stephanie puked all over the court. However, rather than withdraw from the match, she took a moment to compose herself, continued playing, and eventually won the set 12 games to 10.
“I realized I hadn’t been feeling well, and finally I knew it was coming up,” McHale explained to reporters after her gutsy win. “I felt so much better after it happened. I don’t know what caused it.”
Take a look at the video if watching people puke doesn’t make you want to puke:
Well done, Ms. McHale. Here’s hoping you win your next match without spewing chunks.
