Martina Trevisan recently defeated Nao Hibino in the second round of the Miami Masters. Hibino lost to Trevisan in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3. Trevisan will play her third-round match on Saturday. The match ended on a delicate note as the Japanese commented on Trevisan’s team at the end of the match.
The Italian and her team were extremely loud during the match, which upset Hibino. She was deterred by such behavior. Hibino made a snide remark pointed towards the team, claiming that they had ‘no respect’ for players. Fans have reacted to the incident in support of her, saying that Trevisan’s team was, in fact, offensive.
During the post-match handshake, Hibino was dismissive of her opponent. She coldly commented on her team and their theatrics. To further the issue, Trevisan seemed unperturbed. She simply smiled at her team in victory and gave them a thumbs-up in congratulations. Social media has not been forgiving to the Italian for her dismal sportsmanship.
Fans were quick to back Hibino, claiming her to be ‘too polite’. This is not Trevisan’s first rodeo. Sloane Stephens has previously expressed her dislike for the player as well. Additionally, Coco Gauff complained about Trevisan’s loud ‘grunts’ during the 2022 Roland Garros. It is no surprise that the Italian has been embroiled in another altercation.
