It could have been worse. The fan could have stabbed him.
NEW YORK – Rafael Nadal was kissed by a fan who invaded the Arthur Ashe Stadium court after he beat Gael Monfils to reach the U.S. Open quarter-finals on Tuesday.
The Spaniard was returning to his chair having removed his shirt when the male fan put his arms around the former world number one and planted a kiss on his cheek.
Security staff bundled the fan away quickly while a smiling Nadal appeared unruffled by the incident.
Asked about his close shave with the fan, Nadal told reporters: “For me it wasn’t a problem. The guy was really nice. he was a great fan, he said I love you.” (H/T – )
Security should probably be tightened, but I can’t blame the guy. I always wanted to rush the court and play doctor with Maria Kirilenko. I’m just sayin’.
