Tamara Korpatsch deletes post criticising Harmony Tan after clear-the-air talks
All is well again between Tamara Korpatsch and Harmony Tan after the duo “talked and figured out all their misunderstandings”.
Just hours after Tan made a sensational Wimbledon main draw debut by upsetting 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams in the first round of the singles, it was announced that she withdrew from the women’s doubles.
The Frenchwoman was due to team up with Korpatsch on Wednesday but she withdrew due to a thigh injury and to give herself enough time to recover ahead of her second-round clash against Sara Sorribes Tormo on Thursday.
However, the move did not go down well with Korpatsch, who vented her frustration on social media.
“She just texted me this morning. Let me wait here one hour before the match start. I’m very sad, disappointed and also very angry that I can’t play my first doubles Grand Slam,” she wrote.
“And it’s really not fair for me I didn’t deserve that. She asked me before the tournament if we wanna play doubles and I said yes, I didn’t ask her, she asked me! If you’re broken after a 3h match the day before, you can’t play professional. That’s my opinion.”
The duo have since had patched things up and in a new story, Korpatsch appealed to the public not to “write bad comments” about Tan.
“Me and Harmony have talked and figured out all [our] misunderstandings. She made me clear about her injury now and we already apologised to each other,” she wrote in an Instagram Story.
“As a fact I will delete my previous post regarding this situation. And I will ask [you] not to write bad comments to her, don’t want that she get insults! Hope for your understanding!”
