Tennis player Karolina Muchova has stirred up controversy at the US Open after changing her clothes in the middle of a match. The 27-year-old, ranked No. 10 in the world, caused a stir during her quarterfinal win over Sorana Cirstea on Tuesday night.

Clothing Change Creates Delay

Muchova dominated the first set, winning 6-0 against Cirstea. However, after the set, she left the court to switch out her clothes, causing a reaction from her opponent who was ready to continue playing. The temperature in New York City was approaching the high 90s during their match, adding to the tension.

Opponent and Experts Express Confusion

Cirstea approached the chair umpire to complain about the delay, expressing her frustration at being kept waiting. Former tennis professional Jelena Dokic appeared on an Australian network and questioned Muchova's motive and reasoning for taking such a long break.

"She went for a change of shirt, and usually you don't do that when you've got the momentum," said Dokic. "Not only the momentum, but she won 6-0."

Previous Incidents of Extended Breaks

This is not the first time Muchova has caused controversy with extended breaks. In 2011, she took a medical break after losing the first set at the Australian Open against Ash Barty. She returned to win the match and later stated that she was not injured but simply needed a break.

Semi-Finals Showdown

Muchova will face Coco Gauff in the semi-finals of the US Open on Friday, setting up an exciting match to watch.
