Naomi Osaka lost her composure during a third-round upset loss to Leylah Fernandez at the US Open on Friday night. She won the first set and served for the match up 6-5 in the second set but was broken. Then she collapsed in the tiebreaker, committing five unforced errors to lose the set.

Osaka threw her racket after an unforced error down 0-3 in the tiebreaker:

She did it again after losing a point to go down 0-5 in the tiebreaker:

The 23-year-old damaged her racket on three occasions in the match and never received a code violation.

Osaka’s struggles carried into the third set, which she lost 4-6. She was booed by the fans for taking so long between points and for her racket smashes.

Osaka apologized after the match for her racket behavior.
