A group of protesters caused the men's final of the French open to be halted for several minutes as they chanted something from the top of Roland Garros. Once security had quieted them down it appeared to just be a harmless nuisance. Minutes later, after Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer had finished a game in the second set, more protesters in white masks forced their way to the court. One of the guys was grabbed before he got onto the clay, but the second successfully made it onto the court and ran around with a lit road flare. Security quickly grabbed him and tackled him near Nadal.
