WATCH | Svetlana Kuznetsova was sick of her hair getting in her eyes. So she decided to get a haircut. Not too strange -- except Kuznetsova is a professional tennis player, and she grabbed the scissors herself, during a match on Monday. (Video courtesy the Tennis Channel)
She posted to her personal Instagram: "Sometimes you gotta do it."
I thought, 'OK, what's more important now, my hair, which I can let grow, or the match?' I thought, 'OK, I got to go for it right now'.
It worked. She won the Women's Tennis Association finals in Singapore in a huge comeback, winning 7-5, 1-6, 7-5 over Agnieszka Radwanska, the world's third-ranked player, The Guardian reports.
The Women's Tennis Association summed it up nicely.
If you wanna break back just give yourself a haircut 😂😂— Daria Gavrilova (@Daria_gav) October 24, 2016
Naturally, tennis fans (and fellow players) loved it.
"Badass" is definitely one word you could use.
