With the Wimbledon women’s semifinals wrapping up in time, tennis stars, past and present, found time to catch the European Championship clash between France and Germany.
Here are a few of the tweets:
Tennis legend Boris Becker questions Italian referee Nicola Rizzoli.
It shouldn't be Italian referee in the first place ....biased after we beat them in semis ! Auf geht's Männer !!! @DFB_Team— Boris Becker (@TheBorisBecker) July 7, 2016
He, however, made peace with the loss after a few well-meaning replies from fans.
German women’s singles player Sabine Lisicki meanwhile had to learn the rules of football.
Noooooo this was never a penalty!!!! 😏😤😤😤 https://t.co/gGwRvkijh6— Sabine Lisicki (@sabinelisicki) July 7, 2016
Her friend and French single player Kristina Mladenovic, however, was ready to lend a hand.

@sabinelisicki girl he goes hand first to the ball and "unfortunately" touches it so it is penalty! Well, the way you play..it might happen🙊— Kristina Mladenovic (@KikiMladenovic) July 7, 2016
And after the game...

Meanwhile, Alize Cornet had a simple message.

In another part of the world, Swiss youngster Belinda Bencic could not understand what the fuss was about.

Perhaps, it would have been different had Switzerland reached the latter stages of the Euro.
