Tennis Player Stung By Wasp Right On The Backside

Florida: it's a horrible place. When Lauren Davis met Alize Cornet in the Sony Open at Key Biscayne on Sunday, the temperature was in the 90s with a solid wall of humidity. Both players were failing by the second set, and both players left the court in wheelchairs after Cornet's 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory. And, yes, a wasp stung Davis on the ass.

Davis, ranked 81st in the world, refused to blame her loss on the wasp, which probably puts it around a 2 on the Schmidt sting pain index. The emotional pain, from dredged-up memories of My Girl, was likely off the charts.
