Harmony Tan played Serena Williams late into the night on Tuesday, securing a three-hour, 11-minute victory over the 23-time Grand Slam champion on Centre Court that evidently left her unable to compete in her scheduled doubles match this afternoon, withdrawing citing a left thigh injury.
And partner Tamara Korpatsch is not happy about it.
“She can’t run cause she played a 3-hour match yesterday,” Korpatsch posted on an Instagram story. “Sorry, but I’ve played 6:33h in one day and played a singles match the next day.”
The 27-year-old German, who lost her first-round singles match to Heather Watson on Monday, was due to face No. 15 seeds Raluca Olaru and Nadiia Kichenok alongside Tan before the Frenchwoman messaged Korpatsch with the disappointing news.
