Court intruder kisses Rafael Nadal at US Open (video)
A male fan was arrested Tuesday night at the U.S. Open after running on the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium to kiss Rafael Nadal following his fourth round victory against Gael Monfils.
The World No.3 was returning to his chair having removed his shirt when the intruder put his arms around the Spaniard and planted a kiss on his cheek.
“For me, it wasn’t a problem,” Nadal said. “The guy was really nice. “He was a great fan. He said, “I love you,” and he kissed me.”
Tournament officials said police arrested the man for interference with a sporting event.
