Twitter users were up in arms as they thought they spotted Margaret Court at the Wimbledon final, where Ash Barty ended up winning.

Many were questioning why she was allowed to attend the match while Barty’s parents and family were watching the match on TV in Australia.

However, Court wasn’t at Wimbledon, and the Twitter user to point it out claimed it was a joke.

The user who originally posted the clip suggested King and Navratilova were saying: “How the hell did Margaret Court get here?”

Unfortunately, others believed that the caption meant Court had attended the match.

The joke didn’t land and resulted in a range of people being angry that Court was allowed to attend the match, despite her being home in Australia.

However, others pointed out the confusion.
