A fight broke out in the stands at Arthur Ashe Stadium last night at the U.S. Open, briefly stopping play during an otherwise lackluster match between Novak Djokovic and Philipp Petzschner. Everyone seems to be brawling these days.
A fan-shot video shows a youngish dude getting in an argument with an older lady, who had presumably called a foot fault on him. (A second video reveals that the woman had smacked him in the face, apparently for talking during the points.) When the old dude she was with tried to intervene, he got tossed about four rows. The woman then went for the young dude's jugular. All three were arrested. ESPN had given the Brothers McEnroe the night off, robbing us all of potentially classic commentary.
After the match, Djokovic was asked if it distracted him. He said he just hoped it wasn't a Serb. Besides, Novak was more interested in talking about his, uh, djong.
"I have something else between my legs," he said when Brad Gilbert asked if he had a between-the-legs shot in his repertoire like Federer. "Don't worry, I won't show it to you tonight."
