Roger Federer attacked by fan at French Open (video)


During the second set of the French Open men’s final on Sunday, a most bizarre event occurred: a court invader ran into the field, waved a Barcelona flag and tried to put a hat on Roger Federer.

The Swiss tennis star pushed the intruder aside, and security personnel ran onto the court to subdue the man, but he tried to get away. After escaping the guards and jumping over the net, he was tackled, and then carried out.

Federer beat Robin Soderling 6-1 7-6 (7-1) 6-4 to complete his set of Grand Slam titles and equal Pete Sampras’s record total of 14.
