A brief interruption to the fans’ celebration at the Wimbledon Championships on Sunday prompted chair umpire John Blom to reiterate that even corked bottles were not allowed to be opened during the game.
The incident occurred during the first set of a women’s match between Anastasia Potapova and Mirra Andreeva. The chair umpire took the microphone and delivered her message.

«Ladies and gentlemen, please, if you’re opening a bottle of champagne, don’t do it when the players are about to pour it,» Blom said during the mild rebuke.
The crowd cheered and Potapova smiled and nodded her thanks for the message from the chair umpire.
Andreeva won the match 6-2, 7-5, to advance to the fourth round of the Grand Slam event. The 16-year-old Russian native turned heads early in the tournament as she seems to be picking up momentum.

«Actually, I think I’m just a normal teenager, like a normal girl. I do, I think, everything that girls my age do. I love to watch some series. I have to do my school. I have no other choice. I have to suffer for two more years, and that’s it,» added Andreeva. «Sometimes it depends on my mood, but sometimes I prefer to be alone, just with myself, yes.»
