Forza! I meant no disrespect to Sara Errani, says Kristina Mladenovic

French hope Kristina Mladenovic has been cheering herself on in Italian for a long time but it was not to the taste of her second-round victim at the French Open, Italy's Sara Errani. Mladenovic, however, meant no disrespect when she yelled 'forza!'

“Wasn’t nice at all, I was prepared to such things but it is a very bad thing,” said Errani after losing 6-2 6-3 to the 13th seed on Wednesday.

Mladenovic, however, meant no disrespect when she yelled ‘forza!’ (Come on!).

“I always do this. I use the word ‘forza’. Well, it’s a long story between my brother and friends. When we were in Palermo in – well, I can’t remember the year, long, long time ago,” the 13th seed said.

“Nothing against Sara, and if you followed my matches before, maybe you have noticed this. You should have heard this. This is not the first time I use the word ‘forza’.”
