Coco Gauff: lack of video replays in tennis 'ridiculous'

Coco Gauff called for video replays to be used for contentious decisions in tennis after having a heated exchange with the chair umpire during her French Open semi-final loss to Iga Swiatek on Thursday. In the fourth game of the second set of Gauff's 6-2, 6-4 defeat, the umpire overruled a call of 'out' for a Swiatek serve, before awarding the world number one the point. Gauff protested that the original call from the line judge came before she had completed her attempted return which went wide.
