Tennis star's frosty handshake snub


//

Italian Camilla Giorgi caught the eye of tennis fans at the US Open following her frosty attempt at a post-match handshake.

Giorgi was defeated by Greece's 30th seed Maria Sakkari 6-1, 6-0 in the first round and with the match all over in just 57 minutes, she did not look one bit pleased with her efforts in the grand slam opener.

As the pair met at the net to shake hands, Giorgi appeared to instead swat Sakkari's hand.

Her Greek opponent was amused by the Italian's reaction, as it's not the first time Giorgi has been guilty of poor sportsmanship after a loss.

In 2014 she was similarly dismissive of the post-match handshake with Caoline Wozniacki.

Sakkari will next face Chinese opponent Shuai Peng in the second round.
