Spectators buying a ticket for the Sarasota Open match between Frances Tiafoe and Mitchell Krueger may have inadvertently caught a little more action than they bargained for.
Their match, which Tiafoe won 6-3, 6-2, was bizarrely interrupted in the second set by the sounds of a couple making loud love in a nearly apartment.
In a video which has now gone viral on social media, an amused Tiafoe can be seen pausing before serving as the voice of a woman…errr…enjoying herself is heard.
The awkwardness of the situation was summed up perfectly by the play-by-play commentator Mike Cation, who fumbled around for words to describe what was happening.
“That is the most bizarre situation. I don’t know how to put this, folks. Somebody’s phone…going off in the stands… It was an adult video. I don’t know how well you could pick that up at home,” Cation says.
At one point, Krueger slams a ball into the direction of the noise, much to the delight of the handful spectators. But even that had no effect on the noise.
Two points later, Cation adds: “I still hear it. It’s still going. What is going on? No, that is not a phone. That’s an apartment across the lake. That wasn’t a video. At least somebody’s having a good night.”
At that point, Tiafoe yells, “It can’t be that good!”
The incident was so hilarious that hours after the match was over, Cation, Tiafoe and Krueger were still talking about it, this time on Twitter.
Hey @FTiafoe are we about to go viral? ♂️
