There was an unsettling moment during the second set of the French Open that had most fans thinking back 20 years ago to a horrific episode with Monica Seles.
Rafael Nadal was up 4-1 in the second set of the French Open finals when a protest broke out in the upper section of Chatrier, and after getting broke by David Ferrer it was up to Nadal to serve for a 2-0 set lead when a man with a flare ran on the court, sending Nadal for the court exit before the man was detained.
No real news on what the man was thinking, but he had a flare and it was a very scary situation for a moment before he was tackled and the flare was extinguished.
Nadal was then forced to serve for the second set, which he did successfully, and it seems not even a crazed fan is going to stop Nadal from becoming the first man in tennis history to win the same Grand Slam eight times.
