Tennis fans are outraged by footage of 16-year-old starlet Sara Bejlek being fondled by both her father and coach after qualifying for the US Open.

The Czech made her Grand Slam debut at the famous New York tournament on Monday, losing in straight sets to Ludmilla Samsonova in the first round, but that match was marred by a controversial moment following her last qualifying win.

Bejlek defeated Britain’s Heather Watson and footage captured her shaking hand holding her opponent at the net before taking to the pitch to celebrate with her father Jaroslav Bejlek and then her coach Jakub Kahoun.

In the video, the teenage girl approaches a man standing at court who has been identified as her father.

He slaps her bottom and appears to be kissing her on the mouth.

She then walks over and hugs another man, identifying her trainer, who also pats her buttocks.

Sports fans erupted over the footage, which has since gone viral.

“There’s absolutely no reason to touch a 16-year-old girl’s butt like that. It’s beyond inappropriate. It got worse and worse as the video progressed,” wrote one user.

“Creepy trainers. She’s 16,” tweeted another, accompanied by embarrassed and scared emojis.

‘What the hell?? I need more people to see this and talk about him because they literally caught her in 4K how isn’t it talked about???” said a third.

Another Twitter user felt the video in question needed to be investigated by the relevant authorities.

“The WTA needs to address this, especially as these young girls travel with men from a very young age. You can also say it’s the father or wtv but your father is touching your butt like that.

However, not all who responded on social media condemned the act, with some pointing out that the incident only looks awkward to those with a Western perspective.

“It’s pretty common in the Czech Republic. Not something I would do, but a lot of men just don’t think about it sexually. Google our Easter traditions, you might be shocked,” said one user.

“Completely normal in some cultures and households. You see what you want to see,” agreed another.

Bejlek made her US Open main draw debut on Monday, losing 6-1, 6-3 to Samsonova before she and her team reportedly flew straight home to the Czech Republic.
