The French Open final had yet another incident during the final. A few years ago it was a mad man trying to kiss Roger Federer. Today a deranged fan ran onto the court carrying a flare in the second set with Nadal leading 63, 51.
Nadal first ran to the exit once he saw the intruder, then turned away when the shirtless man was tackled by security.
Nadal was serving for the second but incident clearly disrupted his rhythm.
A few games earlier play was momentarily stopped for a few minutes because of a protest in the upper deck.
Unfortunately, this will likely be the most memorable moment of a rather one-sided match.
Security guy tells me that this was a protestor, was saying “France doesn’t respect child rights.” (Lost in translation factor: high)
