This tennis player gave herself a haircut during a match because her hair was pissing her off

Understandable, tbh.

AS ANYONE WITH long, thick hair will tell you, running around with a heavy ponytail or plait can be annoying as hell.

Russian tennis player Svetlana Kuznetsova is currently playing in the WTA Finals in Singapore. During her match against Agnieszka Radwanska today, Kuznetsova found herself bothered by her hair and she decided to do something about it.

Namely she decided to give herself an impromptu haircut. In the middle of the court. With her own hands.

After all, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Here’s the WTA’s suitably incredulous tweet.

The match commentator speculated that it was because she was feeling “heavy on the court and taking a bit of weight off or potentially it’s just really at an awkward length where it’s clearly disturbing her”.

Either way, she’s a woman after our own heart.

Good woman, tbh.
