Sunday at the US Open, a squirrel did the impossible. It snuck by security and secured better seats.
During the first set of Jelena Jankovic and Aleksandra Krunic’s match against Casey Dellacqua and Yaroslava Shvedova on Sunday, the rodent scampered onto the court and halted play.
The squirrel took a nice tour of the court, locking eyes with a line judge before admiring the net. He then scampered under a chair, hopped up on a cooler, and escaped the clutches of a nearby event staffer.
As you can hear by the crowd reaction, many people are frightened of squirrels.
Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time this has happened. In 2013, Sabine Lasicki had one of her singles matches temporarily stopped due to a surprise visit from a rodent.
We may finally have found something that can get in the way of Serena Williams.
