A Ukrainian tennis star takes a photo of a referee's 'bad call'.

Celebrities and athletes utilize social media to share their troubles with the world.

Sergiy Stakhovsky, a Ukrainian professional tennis player, is no exception.

He recently received a warning after he whipped out his iPhone to take a photo of a ball mark during the first round of the French Open. Stakhovsky believed the ball was in, however the umpire didn’t share that feeling and declared it as out.

His opponent during the game, Richard Gasquet took a lighthearted approach to the dispute and stated “I think he was pretty sure the ball was on the line. He’s a funny guy. I think he’s one of the funniest guys in the draw.”

Stakhovsky posted the alleged ‘bad call’ picture on Twitter.

Earlier in May, the tennis star pulled a similar stunt and posted a photo, refuting an umpire’s decision during a game in Munich.

What do you think about the player's decision to tweet such photos?
