The American started the tournament on Wednesday with a clash against teenage Russian ace Erika Andreeva

She was leading 7-6(3), 6-5 when rain hit and caused play to be suspended.

The match will resume later today, weather permitting, but a moment from yesterday’s action has now started going viral.

After conceding a game to Andreeva, Collins looked to be absolutely fuming as she firstly screamed in frustration before telling someone in the stands watching to “shut up”.

It is not the first time that Collins has snapped and told someone to button it while out on the court, and it seems that tennis fans are getting a bit sick of her antics.

Responding to the clip on X, one wrote: “Can’t wait till she retires. I feel like I can speak for everyone and say no one will miss her at all.”

Another said: “Massive Karen energy.”

However, not everybody feels that way as one commented: “Something about Danielle specifically that her ‘Karen’ behaviour doesn’t bother me.


“I actually still really like her. She’s quite funny sometimes.”

As another wrote: “If it was that one ‘fan’ who yelled her name every 30 seconds, then I’m with her. It was ridiculous.”

A Canadian Open round of 32 match between Collins and Maria Sakkari erupted into a loud argument between the pair after the latter spiked a ball into the crowd last August.

The frustrated Sakkari smacked the ball off the ground into the crowd by mistake before raising her hand to apologise to spectators and the umpire.

However, Collins was not happy over the lack of discipline handed to her opponent as she screeched at the chair umpire: “Did you just see that? Did you see what happened?”

Her rival hit back: “It didn’t even hit anyone, it was on the ground.”

But Collins snapped back: “Shut your mouth, shut your mouth.”

Sakkari continued to declare that she meant no maliciousness and said before being cut-off: “What is your problem? I didn’t hit anyone. I framed the ball and it…”

To which Collins interrupted: “You hit the ball into the stands Maria, you almost hit someone.”
