Streaker Interrupts Serena and Venus During Doubles Match (VIDEO)
Onlookers at the Australian Open in Melbourne were in shock after a streaker ran out in the middle of a doubles match involving sisters Serena and Venus Williams and their opponents Ayumi Morita and Martina Mueller.
Security officers were quick to capture the man and he was only on the court for a total of 14 seconds. Tennis Australia spoke about the situation and said:
“The focus of the on-court security team is always on player protection. They are instructed not to chase offenders as their focus at all times must remain on the players. The on-court actions of the security personnel reflected this focus on player protection.”
