McHale Tennis Australian Open
She left it all out on the court — including vomit.
Video of the 22-year-old from Teaneck, New Jersey bending over and throwing up multiple times, which ESPN replayed in slow motion, is being viewed by many online. But the tennis star did have a sense of humor about it after the gutsy match ended.
"That was one of the craziest matches of my life... Sorry for the overshare! Thanks for your amazing support, so happy :) #ausopen15" she posted on Instagram.
McHale, who is ranked 54th by the WTA, rallied back from the incident and defeated Stephanie Foretz, of France, 6-4, 1-6, 12-10.
McHale vomited during the thrilling third set but told reporters she felt much better afterwards.
